Dr Pepper, the soft drink company, awards over $1,000,000 a year in tuition so that college students are able to help themselves and those around them.
The rules of the competition are a bit complicated because there are different ways in which one could win the tuition money. If you are a student between the ages of 18-24, you can submit a dream or goal in order to enter for a chance to compete to win up to $100,000 in tuition.
Once a student reaches 50 votes he or she is able to submit a video. Dr Pepper will select finalists with the most votes, for a chance to compete to win up to $100,000 in tuition. If a student has not chosen as a finalist, if he or she reaches the top 5 of the $5,000 leaderboard when voting ends, there is a chance for those students to win $5,000.
There is hope if you are 25 years of age and older! A student 25 years of age and older cannot compete to win $100,000 in tuition but can compete to win the $5,000 leaderboard prize.
Not a student? You can nominate an amazing student that you know and submit a story on their behalf. Click here to enter the competition or nominate a student.
I am only 3 votes from being able to submit a video and a long way from having the most votes on the $5,000 leaderboard. Click here to access my profile and vote for me OR you can click the link below search my name Ariana Q. in the search box located halfway through the page and you will be directed to page to vote for me! Vote for me so that I can inspire the dreams of single parent children.
As the product of a single parent household, I am well aware of the battles and struggles faced by children raised in single parent households. A child’s depth of endurance and ability to persevere in a single parent family is astonishing. Sadly, some children are hindered by the void of their absent parents. I will encourage their dreams by letting them know that they are not alone. I can only do that with your help!
