In the beginning of April, Church Hill Classics®
announced the 24 Finalists of the 6th Annual Frame My Future Scholarship Contest
. This was when the real competition began as the determination of the final 5 Winners placed now in the hands of the American voters.
All 24 Finalists had to do their part in earning America’s vote. Church Hill Classics assisted by sending each Finalist a suggested marketing packet. Some of the suggested ways to get the word out were to use social media, contact their local newspaper, post an article on their school’s website, and distribute flyers provided by Church Hill Classics with their entry’s image. With this packet, it was up to the 24 Finalists to use the tools provided to become the ultimate Winner(s).
Being one of the top 5 Winners means receiving a $1,000 scholarship. The Grand Prize Winner, top voted Finalist, will not only receive the $1,000 scholarship but also an additional $1,000 donation to the school’s endowment fund he/she will be attending in the 2014-2015 academic year. Additionally, all of the Finalists will receive a custom-made Frame My Future frame featuring their entries to proudly display their accomplishment of being one of the top 24 Finalists from over 6,000 entries received nationwide.
Voting took place from April 2nd to April 30, 2014, and America has spoken! The top 5 final Winners are:
- GRAND PRIZE WINNER, Suzanne Sylvester from Brooklyn, New York; she will attend York College, CUNY in the upcoming fall semester as a junior
- Hannah Chen from Baton Rouge, Louisiana - incoming freshman at Georgia Institute of Technology
- Alexandra Smith from Apex, North Carolina - incoming freshman at East Carolina University
- Chloe Van Grootheest from Long Beach, California - incoming sophomore at University of Davis, California
- Kristen Stiller from Manassas, Virginia - incoming freshman at University of Virginia
We would like to congratulate all our Winners and our Finalists for their accomplishment. As the saying goes, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” Each of this year’s entrants are stars in our eyes.
