Have you ever just wanted to scream out something at the top of your lungs? Maybe you came across a derogatory comment on social media or saw a tweet that made absolutely no sense? Or, perhaps it was a discussion in one of your classes that brought you to the point of eruption? Sometimes, you just want to grab someone and see if you can shake the stupid out of them. Whatever the catalyst, we’ve all been there. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels, it’s easier than ever to express your opinion, share your knowledge, or just vent about what’s driving you insane. In fact, a single tweet can go around the world in mere seconds. That’s a pretty powerful platform when you think about it, and yet we generally use it to tell the world what we’re eating or crack jokes about the latest ‘ice bucket’ fails on YouTube. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we actually started to use these social outlets to spread good ideas or empower people. The possibilities would be endless.
Now, what would you say if we told you that what you shout out to the world could not only alter someone else’s life, but also your own? It’s true. If you’re unfamiliar with the monthly scholarships sponsored by ScholarshipExperts.com, you may not know about a particular award called the ‘Shout It Out’ Scholarship. This fun and easy scholarship simply requires you to explain what you would say to the entire world if you could have everyone’s attention for just a few moments. Will you use your time to inspire others, or will you use the opportunity to get a few things off your chest? The choice is up to you. But, just remember, your two cents are actually worth $1,500, so make sure it’s well-written and very creative.
If you’re interested in applying for the ‘Shout It Out’ Scholarship, be sure you meet the following criteria:
13 years of age or older
A legal U.S. resident (50 United States and the District of Columbia)
Currently enrolled or planning to enroll in college by 2020
The scholarship closes on September 30, so start working on your speech right away. It’s also not a bad idea to check out the previous winners’ essays to see what the scholarship committee may be looking for in a winning response. Who knows? Your name may be the next one added to the list!
