Highlight: Attention, entrepreneur! Are you tired of writing essays for scholarships and want instead to demonstrate your skills, possibly through something a little more…creative and fun? The Lead Roster B2B Marketing Scholarship does just this with a video contest! Create a short video on YouTube with “Lead Roster Scholarship” in the title and market and sell your own ideas! Whether your submission to the video contest is an entertaining skit or cold, hard facts, gain experience with marketing and sell your way to a $1000 scholarship! According to Lead Roster, participants of the video contest should “explain, present, convince, inspire, entertain, market and basically SELL us on reason why you deserve to win this scholarship.” There’s no essay writing involved in this video contest, and whether you win the cash prize or not you’ll definitely luck out — since who couldn’t use a little more practice at selling themselves?
