Attention high school students in the United States: Samsung is offering seven $1,000 scholarships for the best responses to a short essay question.
All you have to do to apply is submit an essay of 300 words or less describing what you feel are the advantages or disadvantages of investing in technology for education. There are obviously a lot of good reasons to have high tech equipment in the classroom, but every district also has obvious budgetary limitations. The hardest part of this essay might be getting a strong argument in to the small amount of space provided.
The seven essays that Samsung likes the best will win a $1,000 scholarship for their authors, so you should definitely take some time to apply – even if its just to practice your writing!
All essays must be submitted by May 28, 2010 and late applications will not be considered, so don’t waste too much time!
