Quincy, MA (PRWEB) November 5, 2008
When the economy declines, saving money is more challenging and also far more important. For students struggling to pay for college and everyday expenses, this predicament is especially relevant. To help students learn to save, Scholarship Points has issued a challenge to encourage students to begin saving money. As motivation ScholarshipPoints is offering to pay students to take their challenge.
ScholarshipPoints is challenging students to save $500 by the end of the year. Each student who enters the challenge will be eligible to win one of two $500 cash prizes to be deposited into the students' savings account.
"With student loans becoming more scarce ScholarshipPoints has experienced rapid member growth this year adding over 175,000 new student members to our free scholarship website" says program director Mark Marquis. "We believe saving money is something every student can learn to do and we launched this program to encourage them to start".
Any high school or college student in the US is eligible to enter at http://www.scholarshippoints.com/savings. ScholarshipPoints is a fast growing free community of students who participate in online activities to earn points. Their points are used as entries into various scholarships the website gives away to its members.
In 2008 ScholarshipPoints will give students more than $50,000 in free scholarship money. In addition to giving away more scholarship money, ScholarshipPoints will help students in other ways such as the College Savings Challenge in 2009.
Working in conjunction with its sister site student credit card site StudentPlatinum.com, a student credit education and credit card comparison site, ScholarshipPoints is adding more educational challenges to their schedule. By expanding the educational resources ScholarshipPoints hopes to teach students to begin helping themselves by making smarter financial decisions.
http://www.ScholarshipPoints.com is an Edvisors program. Edvisors (http://www.Edvisors.com) is a leader in college marketing and financial services. The company provides a richer, more fulfilling education experience to students, educators and parents worldwide.
