If you’re a high school student who is planning to get your college education soon, whether by entering traditional college with a degree program or by enrolling in online universities, it is extremely important to know that going to college isn’t as easy as it sounds. You might have been warned about the difficulty in the academic workload by your school counselors depending on the degree program you want to take but college is much more complex. College education, even in online universities, is becoming more and more expensive as the tuition fee keeps on increasing.
Therefore, it is of vital importance that you can save up college money while still early to avoid depending on student loans to pay off your college tuition. College entails that you become independent so that means you have to work for the money you will be using to pay for your tuition. However, if you end up saving money too late and depending on your student loans and the minimum wage money you earn from working, there are high chances that you might end up with a lot of student debts. And student debts are something that even grown adults with jobs fear because if you left them go unpaid for a long time, you might end up paying for student debts even while you’re already an adult.
As a high school student, you will have some setbacks on finding money earning opportunities. In addition to this, your opportunities will also be limited because some establishments would rather hire older students. However, there are still ways on how you can save money. One of this is by joining the Detroit Auto Dealers Association’s Dangers of Underage Drinking While Driving Awards. In order to join this contest, you must be a high school student from grades 9-12. You also need to pass a 30 second video that will act as a commercial that will help raise awareness and knowledge on the dangers of underage drinking while driving on middle school students. If you win this, you will get a $2,000 contest prize, which you can use to save up money for your college education. In addition to this, you can also get the chance to further nurture your video editing or directing skills as you and your team will be given the chance to work alongside professionals. The videos will be judged by middle school classrooms who volunteered nationwide. You can check it out at http://courageouspersuaders.com/scholarships-awards/
