Stuck at Prom Scholarship Contest

There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone.  Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another.  And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free.  It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you.  While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier.  This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week.  Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.

(Virtual) prom season is fast approaching, and, with a little imagination and artistic flair, you could be a shoo-in for Prom King or Prom Queen. This creative contest encourages students to incorporate Duck Brand duct tape into their attire. Make this special time in your life even more memorable by winning some money in the process.
