The 2017 winner is ​Merav Epstein of Teaneck!  I am currently a senior at the Bergen County Academies in Hackensack, NJ. Though I go to school for engineering, in recent years I have found my passion for film and art and where they cross over in the field of animation. I have taken classes abroad in Israel, as well as more locally at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. When I am not working on projects, I spend a lot of my time doing design work. I am the Editor-in-Chief of my school's Yearbook, and a design intern for the content creating company Definition 6. I am ecstatic to be able to follow these passions at Northeastern University next year with a Major in Media Arts (Concentration in Animation). I would like to thank Skyline Theatre Company for this acknowledgement and scholarship.
