  • Scholarship Description
  • Courageous Persuaders is a peer-to-peer national scholarship competition that invites high school students in grades 9-12 to create a 30-second commercial to warn middle school students about the dangers of underage drinking and the dangers of texting while driving. High school students can enter separate videos in both categories. The program was built upon the premise that high school students have a tremendous influence on younger middle school peers, and with constructive messages, can positively impact decisions and potentially even save lives. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

This scholarship is providing a great way to bring the best out of film creators to express the importance of staying sober. My goal one day would be to create promos and PSA’s to fight against underaged drinking.
