Buzzell, Welsh & Hill 2020 College Scholarship Program
At Buzzell, Welsh & Hill, we know how difficult it can be to afford an education after high school. We also know how important it is to continue your education. We are pleased to offer our 2nd Annual $2,500 Scholarship Program so that we can help the next generation of college and technical school students bring their academic and professional goals to life. We look forward to awarding this scholarship to one student each year.
2020 Scholarship Theme – Marketing Campaign Targeting Distracted Driving
For this years contest, we invite students to create a (unique) marketing campaign targeting distracted driving among teens in the Macon area. Distracted driving claims more than 3,000 lives each year nationally, and teens are especially at risk. But everyone—including other young drivers—can play a part in better educating teens about the dangers.
Applicants to the scholarship should create at minimum a campaign tagline and description that will speak to young people in and around Macon. One applicant will be awarded a $2,500 scholarship for the 2020 fall semester!
To apply for the 2020 Scholarship, applicants should submit their campaign using the form below. A text essay with a tagline and campaign description is required. Extra consideration will be given to entries that include items such as:
- Formatted essay vs. text only
- Original images, or licensed stock images incorporated into your entry
- Launch and marketing plan
- Promotional materials, like hand-outs, posters, etc.
- PowerPoint, video, or other media
Please copy and paste your essay into the appropriate field below.
