With over 1,000 entries, Bucks for Books came to a close September 13th. It was A LOT of fun to see school rivalry during the Bonus Bucks Battle! If this is your first time hearing about Bucks for Books, the Bonus Bucks Battle was a competition where the schools with the most entries would have one student from that school win extra money!
Last week, I got to travel to THREE
different schools to pass out some pretty big checks (both figuratively and
literally ;) to FOUR lucky students! There were two winners from Wayne State,
Sharae and Gary, who BOTH won $500! I then went to Lawrence Tech to deliver
Ashley her $300 prize, and to Michigan State to deliver Jazmyne her $200 prize! (See pictures below.)
After meeting all of the Bucks for Books winners, I know that each one of them really deserves it and that the money could not have gone to better people :)! I’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered and I wish all of the students an awesome year of schooling. Make sure you stay in touch and follow the Young & Free website, Facebook page and Twitter to keep in the know about upcoming contests and for future scholarships too :).
Good luck with your studies everyone!
