Zenni’s Poetry Scholarship Contest

  • BY Lainie Petersen

We’ve blogged before about how wearing glasses can make you seem more intelligent. Now we’d like to hear about how your glasses carried you through your school days. If you are a high school senior who has been accepted to an accredited college in the United States, or a student at an accredited university in the U.S., you are eligible to compete for one of three poetry scholarships! The grand prize winner receives a $5,000 scholarship, with two additional prizes of ┬áis $3,000 and $1,000.

As you might expect, there’s an eyeglass theme to this contest. We want you to write 250 words, or less, on “Growing up with Glasses: The Formative Four-Eyed Years.” Naturally, we hope you’ll get creative as you describe wearing glasses in the classroom, on the football field or just while hanging out with friends. You could maybe even write an ode to your eye doctor!

Naturally, there are a lot of other details involving GPAs, transcripts and letters of recommendation that we won’t get into here. Mosey on over to our official scholarship website to learn more about the scholarship and its requirements. The deadline is April 1st, 2015, so don’t wait too long to get those creative juices flowing.
