Feelin' Good Scholarship Slam - CLOSED

 

Let’s face it: life can be tough. Sometimes things just don’t work out like we want them to. But when life gets us down, we all have something we turn to that makes us feel better without fail.

What makes you feel good?

We want to know what your pick-me-up is. Do you read a certain poem? Chow down on some pizza? Cuddle your furry best friend? Tell us in a poem what makes you smile and why, for your chance to win.
 

Note: This is a sweepstakes scholarship. That means a winner will be chosen from a random drawing.
 

ELIGIBILITY

  1. The basic requirements are this: (1) you are 25 years of age (or younger), and (2) you are a current or former high school student who will attend or is attending college within the U.S. or its territories.

  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by Wednesday, October 19, 2016. You'll need to register as a member of our community first.

  3. Note: You are permitted to enter only ONE of the two available scholarships open between Thursday, August 18, 2016 and Wednesday, October 19, 2016. Any member submitting to both scholarships will be immediately disqualified.

Got questions? Our scholarship FAQ and contest rules should have the answers. If they don't, feel free to contact us.
