College Scholarships Available from Upromise!

This just in...

I received an email today regarding a new online video contest announced by Upromise (www.upromise.com). Upromise Tuition Tales gives people a chance to tell the world why they or someone they know deserves $25,000 for college expenses.

Bethany told me, "Whether it's a grandmother explaining how her 3-year-old granddaughter could one day become president or a high school senior rapping about his dream to attend the school of his choice – Upromise wants to see it. The more creative, entertaining, and deserving, the better!

"Applicants can submit videos (30 seconds or less) online at www.upromise.com/tuitiontales. There are a few examples up there already to get the creative juices flowing. We’ll be accepting submission until February 25. A panel of judges will choose the top 10 videos…and then America will vote. The top 10 finalists will get a $500 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card and the winner will walk away with $25,000 for college!

"Today Upromise also announced $250,000 in scholarship money available to students attending college for the 2008/09 school year. Additional details on the scholarship can be found at www.upromise.com/scholarship."

Click over and check out the details, then pass the word on to anyone you know who meets the requirements!
