Do you have a child about to enter college? Are you worried that you may not have quite enough to pay for it? Well, the Exchange may be able to help.
The Army & Air Force Exchange Service, in partnership with Unilever is offering four $5,000 scholarships to military students who shine in the classroom.
The essay contest invites authorized Exchange shoppers in grades six through 12 with a grade-point average of 2.5 or higher to submit essays and enter the contest.
The essays of 500 words or less should explain why their community and involvement in community service projects are important to them.
“Through this essay contest, the Exchange helps students see the value of volunteering and serving others,” said Army Col. Collin Fortier, the Exchange’s military community liaison. “Students who serve in their communities see firsthand just how much their work can have an impact on the world.”
The Rewards of Caring scholarship contest will run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 27.
Entry forms can be obtained at Exchange locations worldwide or online at ShopMyExchange.com/sweepstakes. Mailed entries must be postmarked by Sept. 27 and received by no later than Oct. 15.
Contest winners will be selected by Unilever’s Operation In Touch team on or about Oct. 29. Visit www.operationintouch.com for complete rules and entry details.
