All high school students are eligible to enter the Windows 8 Study Smarter Laptop Scholarship contest. There will be 10 winners awarded. You will be competing against college students too, so make sure your entry is top-notch in quality. Winners will receive a HP Envy x2, a hybrid laptop/tablet device.
If you are a high school senior attending a school in the United States, then you qualify. Any intended college major is eligible. No requirements.
You are asked to fill out an online application and submit an essay that address this prompt:
School is a balanced mix of work and play, and PCs have everything you need to do it all! What are the programs or apps you mix to be productive and have fun – and why?
The makers of Windows 8 and Chegg, sponsors of the contest, are asking you to respond to that prompt in only three sentences. Draw from your own background and experience with apps or computer programs to answer the question. Make sure you answer the question directly in as terse a manner as possible.
The deadline for the Windows 8 Study Smarter Laptop Scholarship contest is June 10, 2013.
