In its 3rd annual college scholarship contest, WyzAnt.com, the nation’s largest marketplace of in-home tutors, is offering $15,000 in college scholarship funding to three deserving students. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 in funding paid directly to the school of his/her choice, with 2nd and 3rd place finalists receiving $3,000 and $2,000 respectively.
This year’s contest asks applicants to compose an essay in 300 words or less, responding to the prompt, “How will you use your education to make an impact on others?” WyzAnt’s annual scholarship is unique in that finalists are chosen by popular vote and applicants are encouraged to use social media like Facebook and Twitter to share their essays and solicit votes from friends and family. Students can visit WyzAnt.com or popular scholarship listing services like Fastweb.com and Zinch.com to learn more about this year’s scholarship and the approaching May 1st submission deadline.

Applicants with the most votes as of May 1st will advance to a final round of voting during which tutors listed on WyzAnt.com will choose the three winners for WyzAnt’s 2013 college scholarship contest.
