Another academic year is winding down but before you turn your attention to summer jobs, internships and the occasional beach day, we have a question for you: What was the most important thing you learned this year and why? Not only could answering this question help provide some insight into your priorities for next year but it could also earn you a scholarship for college. That’s right: Scholarships.com's Short & Tweet Scholarship is BACK!

Was it a lecture or group project that stuck with you the most? A personal experience that changed your way of thinking? If it's important to you, we want to know! The challenge is that you have to tell us in 140 characters or fewer. Here's how to enter:

Step 1: Starting May 28th, follow @Scholarshipscom on Twitter.

Step 2: Mention us (@Scholarshipscom) in a tweet answering the question "What was the most important thing you learned this year *AND* why?"

Step 3: You may enter as many times as you want from May 28th through July 4th but please limit your tweets to one per day. Each tweet will be a stand-alone entry and tweets that are submitted by non-followers, exceed 140 characters, do not include @Scholarshipscom, do not answer the entire question or are submitted after the July 4th deadline will not be considered. From there, the Scholarships.com Team will determine which tweets are most deserving of the awards.

  • Starts: May 28th
  • Ends: July 4th
  • Number Available: 3
  • Amount: $1,000 for one first-place winner; $200 each for second- and third-place winners

Interestingly enough, that same thought process applied to some of our favorite A-listers way back when they were considering college majors! Don’t believe us?

Unless you plan on paying for your college education out-of-pocket, completing the FAFSA and applying for scholarships are essential in your quest for financial aid. But have you considered federal programs that forgive student loan debt almost entirely?
