Submit a 250 to 400-Word Essay
The next step is to write and submit a 250 to 400-word essay. Both students and parents will have a unique essay topic. Students will answer: “Given that you already have the necessities for college, if you could only take what fits into a backpack, what would you bring?” Parents will answer: “In a perfect world, when your child moves out for college, what are you going to do with their bedroom?”
In addition to submitting an essay, participants also have the option to submit a video that helps communicate the idea of the essay. Essays (and the optional videos) must be submitted by July 31, 2014.
