Scholarship Description

Sttark is excited to award a $3,000 scholarship to a U.S. high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who can show us how products can be labeled but people can’t.

Essay Prompt

“You can’t label people, but you can label products.”

You can use the following questions to spark your creativity, but you are not required to answer them.

  • Has consumerism influenced the way we view people?
  • Do people try to market themselves for acceptance?
  • What effect do labels have on creativity? How might it differ between products and people?
