Forget About Writing an Essay


…Make a Video!

Bridgestone Tires is tossing aside the old fashioned scholarship essay and wants students to make a short video on the subject of safe driving.

A panel will decide on 10 finalists, and then the public will vote for their favorite finalist video. Many students will find this to be a refreshing method of applying for a scholarship. Some are handy with the pen, and others are creative at making videos. Making videos, even with professional quality editing, can be accomplished with software like Apple’s Final Cut Studio. Not all can afford this, so you may be able to get away with a ‘Lonelygirl15’ web cam job if you spice it up with originality.

Hurry up and get your submission in before July 27th.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • 16-21 Years Old
  • Legal Resident of the U.S.
  • Valid Drivers License
  • Currently Enrolled Full-Time in Accredited Secondary, College Level, or Trade School

3 Grand Prize Winners will each receive $5000.

All 10 finalists will receive…a new set of Bridgestone Tires. Seriously.
