  1. Actually, the Southern Region Scholarship Application Deadline is March 30th, 2012. See: http://cslablog.blogspot.com/2011/12/southern-region-scholarships.html This is so that we may award the winners at our Southern Region Workshop Saturday, April 28th in Buena Park, CA at the Knott's Berry Farm Hotel! Looking forward to receiving applications!
