Atlanta — Atlanta-based RentPath has launched a new college scholarship contest through Apartment Guide in which two winners will receive $2,500 to offset education-related expenses.
Prize money can be used to pay for housing, books, tuition, study broad or other education-related expenses for the upcoming spring semester. Entrants must submit a 500- to 600-word essay on the topic, “What makes a home home.” Apartment Guide will narrow the field to 10 finalists, who will each be given two weeks to create a one- to three-minute video to accompany their essay. The finalists’ essays and companion videos will be posted for one month on ApartmentGuide.com and the public will cast votes. Based on a combination of public voting results and judging criteria, two winners will be selected.
