SellUsedBooks.com, an internet book buying site where people can sell back their used books and textbooks online, are accepting application submissions for their ongoing essay scholarship contest for college students. The Sell Used Books College Essay Scholarship Contest inception dates back to 2010, and was created to help full time students cope with the increasing pressures they deal with due to the high cost of education. The scholarship contest grants the winning student a grand prize cash award of $1,000. This scholarship opportunity is available twice each calendar year, first in the Spring Semester, and then is once again offered in the Fall. Those who are interested in applying or who want to view the past winners and their profiles, may do so by visiting the company website at SellUsedBooks.
Eligibility requirements stipulate that it is open to full-time college and university students, who are actively enrolled for the 2012 Fall semester. In addition, students must be at least 18 years of age or older, and a U.S. Citizen or legal resident. Applications must be submitted using the company website, and received on or before December 1, 2012 (midnight, P.S.T.). The company will announce the winner of the grand prize on the company site in the “scholarship news and information” department on or before January 15, 2013, with an accompanying press release to follow.
An essay entry of 750-1250 words will only be accepted if it is submitted through the SellUsedBooks online form. The topic for the 2012 Fall contest asks "What book has made a significant and positive impact on you? Detail why it is meaningful to you by listing specific ways it has changed or deeply affected your life." The essays are impartially evaluated by the company in-house panel and will be judged on their originality, grammar and spelling, strength of idea, and organization. Only one entry may be submitted per eligible student and any misuse to any of the official rules will result in disqualification.
“I am extremely pleased by all of the positive feedback we’ve received from the students, and the heartfelt support the universities provide to help promote this to their students is nothing short of amazing,” says Andrew Ha, SellUsedBooks.com Marketing Specialist.
The grand prize winner will receive the Scholarship cash prize of one thousand dollars, which will be paid in a check made payable directly to the scholarship prize recipient. This prize cannot be transferred, assigned, or changed. If SellUsedBooks is unable to get in touch with winning student, the next runner-up entry will then be notified and awarded the prize. The contest award is contingent upon full compliance with all of the official rules. More detailed information and specific contest rules are available at the company web site scholarship page.
