Want a chance to win $10,000 for your education? “The Latina Smart Fund, powered by Kmart, is awarding $25,000 in scholarships to students. If you are between 16-22 years old then you have until October 31st to enter! Here are the official contest rules:
“OK, this is how the Latina Smart Fund scholarship contest works. First you sign-up and then you submit an essay of up to 1000 words or a video up to 2 minutes answering the topical question. We want you to be creative, be inspiring and most importantly, be yourself! Once everyone has sent in their submissions, the top 50 entries will be selected based on the amount of votes received. If multiple entries are tied for 50th spot, all entries involved in that tie will move on to the judging phase. Then our Latina Smart Ambassadors (Blogueras) will rate the 50 finalists based on the following criteria:
- ORIGINALITY — How unique and creative is the essay/video?
- RELEVANCY TO THE THEME — How well was the question answered?
- STYLE — How well was the applicant’s personality portrayed? Is the entry well written in terms of grammar and is it easy to understand?
- ENTHUSIASM — How much does the applicant believe the scholarship will benefit her?
- ENGAGEMENT — How compelling is the entry? Did it make you want to keep reading/watching?
The Blogueras’ Top 20 selections will be then shared with the judge’s panel. If there’s a tie — the Blogueras will break it. Who are the judges you ask — well, they are a selected group of trusted experts in their fields of creativity, business and education.
The judges will then announce the winners around December 7th, 2011. And for the prizes — the winners will get:
- One Grand Prize Winner will receive a $10,000 Scholarship
- Three Prize Winners will receive a $5,000 Scholarship
That’s it – Pretty simple right? Just tell us what makes you Latina Smart and you could be on your way to some free money – and we think that’s pretty Latina Smart of you!”
