Win a Scholarship with Twitter

You may have seen some of these tweets posted. has announced a twitter contest where they are giving away $14014.00 to college students on Twitter.  One lucky tweeter can win a scholarship of $10,000. Similar to most contests designed to increase a company’s followers, the task is not too difficult, even for time-stressed college students:

  1. Create a Tweet highlighting how we can use Twitter to improve the world.
  2. Forward your tweet as a link to @scholarships and include the hashtag #scholarships. (A little redundant to me, btw).
  3. Follow @scholarships.

The contest expires on 10/29 and the winner will be announced on the 30th.
