Who Can Enter: To enter, you must be a high school senior (home schooling is accepted) in the U. OR a college student currently enrolled in an accredited U. That means you don’t want to just talk to the camera the whole time.Your response should clearly answer the questions above, but it should do so in a creative way.
Selection criteria: Entries are judge on writing ability (25 percent), creativity (25 percent), originality (25 percent), and overall excellence (25 percent).
In the event of a tie, the essay with the higher overall excellence score will be declared the winner. In fact, July is National Ice Cream Month, and that’s the inspiration behind this award.
Usually we think of college scholarships as elite awards available only to the top students who have excelled in academics, athletics, or extracurriculars.
Sometimes, students who have steadily made their way through high school without particularly standing out in any single area may feel as though a college scholarship is an unrealistic expectation. Many alternative scholarships exist, some in niche skill sets, others in slightly unconventional specialties, and still more that reward quirky or creative thinking.
