If you are on your way to college or already in college this is for you. Godaddy is having a scholarship contest, which totals up to $100,000. 10 winners will be chosen to receive $10,000 each for writing a 500 word essay describing how the Internet or Internet Technology (e.g. websites, blogs, forums, social media, etc.) has helped you during the course of your studies and how you envision benefiting from it through college and beyond. You would also need two professional or personal references like an instructor, or a mentor to give you a letter of recommendation. You can't use family members, so keep that in mind.
The contest started January 11th, 2011 and the deadline for submitting the essay and recommendation letters is March 31st, 2011. I think it gives plenty of time, even if you hate writing essays.
If you are interested, good luck to you! Anything is possible if you do your best, and believe in yourself. Even if you don't win, you still gave it your all!
