For many kids, getting that first pair of glasses is a rite of passage. Now, high school seniors and college students can share their memories of growing up with glasses and earn money for college at the same time. Zenni Optical is proud to announce its first Poetry Scholarship Contest and will award scholarships of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 to contest winners.

Contest entrants are asked to compose a poem of 250 words or less on the topic of “Growing up with Glasses: The Formative Four-Eyed Years.” Zenni’s judges will evaluate entrant’s poems, along with their GPAs and letters of reference, and award a $3,000 scholarship to the first prize winner. The second and third prize winners will receive $2,000 and $1,000 respectively.

Students interested in entering the contest should visit the official scholarship site at http://www.zennioptical.com/scholarship-poetry-contest to find out more about the contest’s rules and conditions.
