(PRWEB) February 22, 2012
WyzAnt.com, a national in-home tutoring service provider, will award $10,000 in total scholarship funds to three finalists in its annual college scholarship essay contest. Interested applicants are asked to submit an essay response to the prompt, “What is the most important lesson you have learned in your life?” by April 1, 2012. WyzAnt’s scholarship is unique in that finalists are chosen by popular vote and applicants are encouraged to use social media like Facebook and Twitter to share their essays and solicit votes from friends and family. Students can visit WyzAnt.com or popular scholarship listing services like Fastweb.com and Zinch.com to learn more about this year’s scholarship and complete an application.
With little more than one month remaining before the April 1st deadline, WyzAnt has received more than 15,000 student applications. “Participation in this year’s contest has been really amazing,” said WyzAnt’s Director of Communications, Daniel Breiner. “We’re thrilled so many students have chosen to share their remarkable life lessons with the WyzAnt community.”
Because finalists for WyzAnt's College Scholarship are chosen by popular vote, it’s important for applicants to submit their essay’s well in advance of the April 1st deadline in order to leave ample time to solicit votes. Applicants with the most votes as of April 1st will advance to the finals where WyzAnt’s network of tutors will chose three winners. This year’s winner will receive a $5,000 college scholarship paid directly to the student’s school with runners up receiving $3,000 and $2,000, respectively. WyzAnt will announce the 2012 finalists in April and winners will be named in early May.
