SENIORS, Just a reminder with the new year, that your Colorado Springs area Jiffy Lube owners are offering one $3,500 scholarship award and two $1,500 scholarship awards to 3 local high school students – students simply have to write about “What Drives You?” – no grade point or test score requirements! We only have a handful of essays and there is a great chance of winning! Students attending high school in the Colorado Springs area can apply directly online NOW at: https://yourturn2apply.com/colorado.htm and see last year’s scholarship winners.
Program Overview: Three finalists will be selected from the 500 word “What Drives You?” essays submitted. Each finalist will be guaranteed a minimum $1,500 award if they create and submit a 1-2 minute video that expands on their essay in their own candid words, visuals, etc. The overall $3,500 scholarship winner will be chosen from these videos.
