John Huglen was a musician who played Cajun accordion and fiddle.  He was from Forest City, Iowa and was a member of the band Cajun Hot Soles.   Mr. Hughlen passed away at the end of 2009, but his friends and family are memorializing his love of Cajun music by establishing a scholarship to support attendance at one of three music camps:   Cajun Music & Dance Weekend at Folklore Village, Dewey Balfa Cajun & Creole Heritage Camp, and the Cajun/Creole Week at Augusta Heritage Center.  Applicants must be residents of these upper Midwest states:  Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  So if you know someone in one of those states, tell them!  This is a great opportunity!
