At InspirationalStories.com, we believe in holding yourself together, accepting life, and making the inspired decisions that change the horizons of their life. We’re also well aware of just how important an education is too. After all, learning is how we improve and maximize potential.
But sometimes, the cost of education is a limiting factor in being able to do so and we want to help. So, we’re currently running an essay contest that’ll give eligible students the opportunity to submit their best stories for the chance to win a $750 scholarship. There will only be one winner.
All you have to do is write a motivational/inspirational story about someone who inspires you and submit it to us! The winner will also be acknowledged on our website aside from earning the scholarship.
Here are the submission guidelines for the essay…
- Any high school senior or college/university student is eligible to participate.
- Must be a U.S. Citizen
How To Submit
Eligible individuals should write an 800-word motivational/inspirational story about someone who inspires them. We’re only accepting one submission per person.
Make sure to send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each submission should also include the following information:
- Your name
- Your address
- Phone number
- Email address
- Proof of enrollment in school/Institution
Tips For Writing Your Essay
We understand that everyone will have a unique story. But all we ask is that you proofread your article before submitting and include as much detail as possible. We also recommend limiting your paragraphs to no more than 3-5 sentences.
