Superpower Scholarship: Let the Battle Between Good & Evil Begin!

By Tamara
Superpower Scholarship Have you ever fantasized about being a superhero? I’ll admit that there has been more than one occasion where I have dreamed of flying at lightening fast speeds across the sky and possessing superhuman strength -- especially when trying to open a jar of peanut butter. On the other hand, I can also see myself slithering into a leather bodysuit and wielding a bullwhip against my sworn enemies. Of course, with my luck, I’d probably end up hitting myself in the face and looking like Indiana Jones...ouch! We all connect on some level with those larger than life characters that make being a hero, or a villain, so appealing. But, if you had the choice, which side would you pick? Good or Evil? Hero or Villain? Well, here’s a chance to explore that fantasy and possibly win $2,500 by applying to the Superpower Scholarship! is looking for a short essay (250 words or less) describing which hero or villain you would trade places with for one day and why. The character you write about doesn’t have to be an obvious choice, either. Get creative and invent your own superhero, or look to the real world for some villains that would make anyone’s blood boil. Just be sure to have some fun and stay within the word count. But hurry: the deadline for submissions is March 31, 2012. Looking for more scholarships? Don’t forget to start a free account today at
