Military students can earn cash for college in a scholarship contest sponsored by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Unilever. Four winners of the Rewards of Caring scholarship contest will each receive a $5,000 scholarship. Military students can enter the essay contest from Aug. 31 to Sept. 27. To enter, authorized Exchange shoppers in grades six through 12 with a grade-point average of 2.5 or higher must submit an entry form and an essay in English of 500 words or less explaining why their community and involvement in community service projects are important to them. Entry forms can be obtained at the Sweepstakes webpage at ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes. For more information, see this Paycheck Chronicles post.
