The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) announces the 100 winning students who were selected to attend Beacon 2014.
The students, along with 200 honorable mentions, were selected from a pool of more than 900 applicants-based on the creativity, presentation and content of their resume, professional portfolio, and creative marketing pieces. The applications were judged by PBA members, including top manufacturers, distributors and licensed professionals nationwide.
Meet these exceptional students at PBA Beauty Week 2014. Held annually as part of the week's festivities, Beacon accepts 100 winners and invites 200 additional honorable mentions to be a part of this career-changing event. Attendees are comprised of the nation's top cosmetology students-and PBA provides them with the foundation to build a successful future. Designed to educate students on the various components needed for an accomplished career, Beacon takes students behind the business and provides valuable insight on marketing, business operations, networking, and leadership training.
Beacon winners receive free tuition, and honorable mention attendees pay a small fee to attend PBA Beauty Week in Las Vegas, which includes a full line-up of education tailored specifically to them. Students are also able to tour the Cosmoprof North America trade show floor to meet beauty business leaders and attend PBA's annual Business Forum where they can lea the role global distributors and manufacturers play in the industry.
As part of this year's event, PBA is encouraging Beacon winners to post the "I'm Going to Beacon 2014!" graphic on their social media pages as a way for their followers to support them on their jouey.
