If you’re a high school or college student, chances are you most commonly use social media to stay connected with friends or keep up with the news. Now you can use social to pay for school. Now through March 2014, Accelerate Online Marketing (Accelerate) is giving two students the chance to win a $500 scholarship to help pay for their schooling. What’s the catch? The scholarship will be given to the two digital rock star students – college or senior in high school – who can prove their elite social media clout.
To qualify, all you do is write a 400-800 word essay on a topic relating to how your online experience has impacted your life. This is your canvas to talk about anything and everything you love about social media and the online space. Creativity is encouraged, and there is no wrong topic.
Once we receive your essay, we will post the essay to the Accelerate blog. This is where your skills as a social media genius will come into play. After your essay is published to our blog, all you have to do is share the blog post with your friends and followers on your personal Facebook page using #AccelerateScholarship. The two participants with the highest Likes and Shares will each receive a $500 scholarship.
Accelerate Online Marketing takes pride in giving back to the community and empowering those with big dreams to live them. For rules, directions and eligibility, click on the scholarship link here https://accelerateom.wpengine.com/marketing-scholarship/.
