LatinaLista — No need to rehash the fact that going to college is as expensive as ever. Now, with the new guidelines that says everyone who gets a Sallie Mae loan will have to pay the monthly interest on the loan — while they’re in school, every penny is going to count like never before.
Not to mention, all those students who are now faced with mountains of school debt and no job prospects on the horizon.
So, when there’s news of a chance to get money for college or to win money to pay back a student loan, it’s BIG news!
And that’s what sponsors of a really unique award had in mind when they created TuitionTales.
No transcripts or teacher recommendations needed. In fact, abuela and abuelo can do this. All that’s needed is a video camera.
Tuition Tales is open to students, graduates, parents, and grandparents. You can enter on behalf of yourself or your family members and friends.Create a personal 30-second video and tell us why you deserve $10,000 for college. Make us laugh…make us cry…make us applaud and you could be one of three $10,000 grand prize winners! Or you could be one of 12 finalists to receive a $250 gift card to Bed Bath & Beyond and a $250 Bank of AmericaÂ® Visa Gift Card.
It doesn’t get any easier than this. If you need money for college, do yourself a favor and either use, borrow or rent a video camera, get creative and GO FOR IT!
