There are tons of scholarship opportunities out there, but none of them seem quite as much fun as the dozens of video contests I’ve seen for students. So to get you ready and motivated to fill out those scholarship apps this year, I threw together a few contests I came across this week that have upcoming deadlines. Happy filming.
Herman Miller’s “Hey, Where Do You Learn Best?” Student Video Contest
I’m going to come right out and say that what caught my attention here was the brand name of my sweetie’s favorite chairs. I guess one of UCSD’s study rooms had Herman Miller chairs, and he liked them (and talked about them) so much that I actually know what kind of chair is my significant other’s favorite. But I digress.
Their video contest for students wants short, creative videos about where you learn best, whether it is study multi-tasking during spin class or while tanning (and dodging frisbees) in the quad.
Basics: 1-3 minute video about where you learn
Grand Prize: $2,500 Visa Gift Card
Deadline: March 26, 2010 (coming right up! hurry!)
