College and high school students between the ages of 16 and 21 have the chance to win money for college by making a video promoting safer or more environmentally aware driving in this week's Scholarship of the Week. The Bridgestone Safety Scholars video contest asks students to create an original public service announcement addressing either automotive safety or automotive environmentalism.
Videos must be either 25 or 55 seconds in length, must be the creator's original work, and cannot incorporate content or locations the creator does not have legal permission to use in a film. Entries can be submitted online between May 27 and June 17, and on June 25 the top ten videos selected by Bridgestone Americas will be posted online. Three grand prize winners will then be chosen from the top ten by popular voting. Winners will receive both $5,000 in scholarship money and a trip to the 2010 Chicago auto show.
Eligibility: Students ages 16 to 21 who are United States citizens or permanent residents and are currently enrolled in either high school or an accredited college or trade school.
Deadline: June 17, 2009
Required Material: An original video, 25 or 55 seconds in length, that addresses issues of either automotive safety or automotive environmentalism. Videos must be uploaded to the Safety Scholars website between May 27 and June 17 along with a completed registration form.
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.
