College scholarship contest for 2020 by Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty


It's this time of year again when my firm, Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty is running our annual college scholarship contest for 2020. For all the details, be sure to visit www.whatmakesahouseahome.com.


Since 2011, we have asked our high school students in Thurston County, "What Makes a House a Home," and over the years, have received beautifully written essays on this topic.


The college scholarship contest is open to all Thurston County, WA high school students, grades 9 - 12 who are enrolled in public or private schools, or who are home-schooled or enrolled online.


Students may enter an essay up to 500 words starting March 13, 2020. The last day for submission is May 3, 2020.


Three winners will be announced in May 2020.


1st place - $1,000


2nd place - $750


3rd place - $500


And the first place winner will also select an educator for the Inspirational Educator Award, who will receive a $500 grant.


If you know of a Thurston County high school student, please pass this along!

Good morning Francine. Nice gesture on the part of your office. My son received such a scholarship from a real estate company when he was in college. Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Francine Viola that's a great way to give back.... I always provided a scholarship in someone's name from the high school who passed away.... I like yours better....

Getting a scholarship is very difficult. My friend told me about ways to get grants to study in Germany. And one of the most adequate options for obtaining grants is working as a blogger for the Instagram account of one company. To get a grant, you need to write an essay about yourself (which by the way can be ordered from the website https://buypapercheap.net/ that provides assistance to students with different types of papers) and then record a video and send it to this company. However, it is rather difficult to get selected because this method of obtaining grants is very simple and a lot of students want to receive a grant in this way.
