Thanks to everyone who got involved in the selection process, by voting on your favorite photo. The public voted from 12 Finalists, and the top three voted photos were our winners. We also raffled off five $10 gift cards to Five Guys Burgers and Fries, from a drawing of everyone that voted! Thanks for your votes, and congrats to our gift card recipients. We also want to say congratulations to our remaining 9 Finalists for making it to the voting round, so they will be receiving a photo frame and certificate!
It’s almost time for the “Frame My Future” Scholarship Contest 2010, which will be open for entries September 30, 2009. Sign up to receive more info about the scholarship as it becomes available. It’s open to students attending college for the 2010-2011 academic year, so sign up to receive info for yourself, or share with a family member or friend.
It’s a fun scholarship opportunity, because we want you to send us a creation that communicates: This is how I “Frame My Future.” Entries can be a photograph, collage, poem, drawing, painting, graphic design piece, short typed explanation, or anything YOU can create in an image.
The scholarship contest also involves a public voting period, and we give away $6,000 in scholarship awards: Five students each receive a $1,000 scholarship, and our Grand Prize Winner also receives a bonus $1,000 donation to their school’s scholarship endowment fund. You can check out our 2009 Scholarship Winners on our website, and get ideas for your 2010 entry if you are eligible!
