A $500 College Scholarship


Picture the Magic provides advice, insight and information to families who want to make the most of their vacation, making their dream trip as magical as possible.

We believe there is true “magic” in providing stellar personal customer service. The ability to create a brand through unexpected acts of human kindness and service help differentiate the best companies in the world from all the rest.

Students currently studying Marketing, Business, Travel, Hospitality or Communications may be especially interested in this scholarship program, however focus in these fields is not required. A passion for serving a customer for the sake of delighting another human being is all you need.
