Safety Scholars Video Contest by Bridgestone

Scholarship of the Week Targets Aspiring Filmmakers

Jun 14, 2010

by Scholarships.com Staff

If you have a talent for video and already make short films for fun, you should look into video contest scholarships that could reward you with more than a reel of your movie-making abilities. This week’s Scholarship of the Week is one such award, offering $5,000 to those who come up with the most creative clips on promoting auto safety.

The Safety Scholars Video Contest by Bridgestone asks applicants to come up with short clips to serve as public service announcements on auto safety and what the youth set can do to drive more safely. Winners don’t only get scholarships; their videos run on television stations across the country, which could give you quite a bit of exposure. Don’t limit yourself if this video contest isn’t for you though. There are a number of awards out there for you aspiring filmmakers, and will probably be less competitive than awards that ask for a more traditional but less involved application. If you’re interested in this one though, get that camera out and start filming. (June is National Safety Month, after all.)

Prize:

Three finalists will receive $5,000 scholarships, payable to the accredited university, college, or trade school at which the winner is enrolled full-time. (Eligible high school students will receive their scholarships at the time of their enrollment in an institution of higher education post-graduation.) Those three finalists will also receive tickets to the Chicago Auto Show in February 2011, complete with round-trip air travel and accommodations.

Eligibility:

The video contest is open to legal permanent U.S. residents ages 16 through 21 who are enrolled full-time in accredited secondary, college level, or trade schools (or have plans to do so after their high school graduations).

Deadline:

July 1, 2010

Required Material:

Applicants are judged based on the concept/idea, effectiveness, and creativity of their video entries. Entries must be original videos of 25 to 55 seconds in length on one or more issues or topics related to auto safety and improving auto safety for drivers ages 16 through 21. Applicants must also complete an official entry form on Bridgestone’s Safety Scholars website.

Further details about the application process can be found by conducting a free college scholarship search on Scholarships.com. Once the search is completed, students eligible for this scholarship award will find it in their search results.

And remember, there’s no need to rely on expensive student loan options to pay for your college education. For more information on finding free scholarship money for college, conduct a Scholarships.com free college scholarship search today, then apply and win! It’s that easy!
