Words of Wisdom Contest
With Black History Month around the corner, I wanted to let my historically black college and university (HBCU) readers know about a fabulous contest. Alltel Wireless has asked bloggers to help spread the word about their "Words of Wisdom" contest where ten students will have the chance to receive a $10,000 scholarship to a participating black college or university by writing an essay.
Plus, all 10 winners will be honored at an awards luncheon to be held Thursday, March 12th, 2009 in Little Rock, Arkansas. "Words of Wisdom" spokesperson and esteemed poet and author, Dr. Maya Angelou, will personally present each winner with their scholarship. Click here for more information.
In these tough economic times scholarships are more important than ever.
Speaking of "Words of Wisdom," when it comes to beauty and fashion, it's always fun to play around with fads and trends, but being yourself is always in style!
What words of wisdom do you live by? Please share! Are you an HBCU alum or current student?
