Instructions for Scholarship Application

Applying is simple! Just pick a topic below and write a 500 to 700 word essay about it. Please write your topic at the top of your paper.

Topics:

  • Describe the ways that you've made changes in your life to help protect the environment.
  • What does the future of organic gardening look like?
  • How can college campuses make changes that will positively impact the environment?
  • What are the biggest challenges of living an organic lifestyle and how can you overcome them?
  • What does "living green" mean to you?

All essays must be written by the person applying for the scholarship. You must cite sources if using information found from other articles or websites. Please do not use any quotes longer than two lines. All essays will be checked for plagiarism.

We will grade these essays on content and creativity. However, they must be written at a college level and include proper grammar and punctuation. One missed comma won't cost you the win if you have a great essay, but if your paper is filled with errors then you'll have a smaller chance of winning.

Your final draft must be saved as either a PDF or a Word document.

Please email your final draft to SaferScholarship2016@woodstream.com by the deadline above.

Safer® Brand will notify ONLY the winning participant at the date of announcement listed above. You will be notified at the same email in which you used to apply.
