Do you ever talk to your TV? I know that sounds like a strange question, but when I am watching the news I will often shout out my suggestions for policy reform. Of course the TV news people cannot hear me, but if I get riled up I just have to let it out.
Well, if you have an opinion on how to address what many have labeled ‘the foreclosure crisis’ in America, you can do more than talk to your TV, you can write about your ideas and possibly win a scholarship.
The Foreclosure.com Scholarship Program encourages students to offer innovative ideas and solutions to ‘solve the foreclosure crisis’ in the form of an essay. Essay submissions must be between 1,000 and 2,500 words and all accepted freshman and enrolled under-graduate and graduate-students are eligible to apply.
The basic details are as follows:
- Deadline: Dec. 31, 2009
- Requirements: Original, previously unpublished work. Minimum 1,000 words, maximum 2,500.
- Awards: Five winners will be selected. Top prize $5,000, second through fifth will receive $1,000 each.
