If you are a high school student, then you are probably no stranger to adults and authorities asking you on your plans for your college education? What degree program or bachelor degree are you planning to take? What university or college are you planning to enrol into? Have you passed your requirements for your college or degree program? What are your plans after finishing your bachelor degree? Will you be taking a master’s degree? What kind of job or career are you planning to take? How do you plan to pay for your college education? Those are probably some of the many questions you have been asked.
As a high school student, those questions probably seem daunting, especially the ones about how you are planning to pay off your college tuition fees and other expenses. With the lack of opportunities around you and the ever looming threat of student debts and student loans that come with college, it is understandable if you feel like that. However, do not be afraid for there are plenty of other ways on how you can avoid having your student debts accumulate or how you can save money even though you are still in college. This is by taking up scholarships or entering contests.
One of the contests you can enter is the Courageous Persuaders’ the Dangers of Underage Drinking while Driving Awards. One of the many foundations that support it is the Lindsey Renee Cianciolo Family Memorial Fund. The Lindsey Renee Cianciolo Family Memorial Fund first started supporting and funding two Michigan scholarships with $1,500 in 2007. Up to now, the scholarship funding is still going on and is mostly financed by the father, Michael, and Lindsey’s sisters, Mary and Allie. This is a way of their to denounce underage drinking and to prevent more lives from being lost to underage drinking while driving since Lindsey died due to a motor vehicle accident caused by underage drinking in 2005
Now, this $1,500 is one of the prizes that high school students in grades 9 to 12 can win should they join the contest. To join the contest, they must create a 30 second video at most that will warn middle school students and classrooms about the dangers of underage drinking while driving. The winner will be receiving $1,500 and can also win the other scholarship prizes in the award. To learn more, go to http://courageouspersuaders.com/scholarships-awards/.
