If there is one thing that students nowadays should really learn about, it would be how to prepare for their college education. Preparing for college education entails more than just knowing what degree program to take or online universities to enroll in. It is also about preparing for the tuition fees and other expenses that you will have to take once you’re enrolled in your degree program especially since college tuition fee prices have been increasing steadily for the past years. Online universities used to be the lesser expensive alternative to traditional college. While it is still relatively less expensive as compared to going to traditional college, there are still some online colleges that also decided to increase their tuition fee costs, making online education more expensive as compared to before.
Help your child prepare for this by teaching them how to save up money even while they’re still in middle school or high school. While it is true to some level that middle school and high school students don’t really have much means to be able to earn a lot of money, there are still ways on how one can do it. One of the best ways to do that is by joining contests. If your child is quite talented in editing videos or having a vision for making videos and for advocating for something, then this contest might just be the right thing for them.
The Courageous Persuaders Awards are looking for videos about warning people of the dangers of underage drinking directed and created by high school students. The grand prize for this award amounts to a whopping $3,000. The winning commercial will also be aired on television and the winning team will get to work with professional directors or editors to learn how to upgrade their commercial. Not only will this contest be able to help your kid save up money for their college fund or for other expenses, this will also help nurture their talent for directing or editing. In addition to that, the Courageous Persuaders will also be a way for your kid to learn and research about underage drinking while driving and how it can be dangerous.
In order to join this contest, the participants must be in high school students in grades 9 to 12. They must also create a 30 second video or commercial that will help raise awareness on the dangers of underage drinking.
