Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
In today’s economic landscape, higher education is often out of reach for many students. To make the dream of post-secondary education more attainable for students, ODYSSEYWARE recently announced its first-ever scholarship essay contest.
Students who have been currently enrolled in ODYSSEYWARE courses through their school or have been enrolled in the previous 18 months can enter an essay on one of three relevant topics into the contest for a chance to win one of three academic scholarships:
- First Place: $5,000
- Second Place: $3,000
- Third Place: $1,000
In addition, each award winner’s sponsoring ODYSSEYWARE teacher will receive an Amazon Kindle Fire (or prize of comparable value).
According to Tim Carlson, Vice President of Marketing for ODYSSEYWARE, “Our company was founded on the idea that every child should have the opportunity to learn in an environment that meets his academic needs. This scholarship contest is a way we can offer more than just curriculum. We can offer hope.”
