How could education at the high school level help avert and/or minimize a future foreclosure crisis?
Boca Raton, FL (Vocus) September 2, 2010
Foreclosure.com today announced that it will reward five more college students with scholarships who can best provide a solution(s) to one of the most troubling issues facing our nation today:
"How could education at the high school level help avert and/or minimize a future foreclosure crisis?"
Foreclosure.com, which received thousands of entries from students during its inaugural scholarship program last year, will accept written essays/plans (800-word minimum, 2,000-word maximum) through its website from Sept. 1, 2010, to Dec. 1, 2010.
Five winners will be selected at the conclusion of the contest and will share $9,000 in allotted scholarship funds. The top prize is a $5,000 scholarship and four $1,000 grants will be awarded to the runners up.
All students must read and agree to the scholarship rules, which are located on the Foreclosure.com contest page at http://www.foreclosure.com/scholarship.
“Education equals freedom,” said Foreclosure.com Director of Education, Linda Yates. “Often we don't know what we don't know – where do the roots of the foreclosure problem really lie? How far back can we trace it? These are important questions. So we are eager to get answers, which is the reason we are excited to review this year's submissions on how the future generation of homebuyers will be able to make smart financial decisions."
In addition to the cash prizes (5) in the form of scholarships, winning submissions will also be published on Foreclosure.com.
