Yes, you can vote for as many entries as you'd like. You'll only be able to vote one time per entry within a 24 hour period though.
Letters of recommendation are only required if you make it to the final round of the grand prize scholarship competition. Semi-finalists will be announced by October 17th and we’ll let you know if we need one from you. You'll only have one week to send us the recommendation letter after we've shared the news though, so it would be a good idea to talk to your reference before then. Make sure to give them enough time to write you an outstanding letter!
Of course you can, but it is definitely not required. Please make sure they are appropriate and don’t violate any of your internship company privacy or safety policies. All videos will be screened and unedited footage is best.
Yes, you can still apply if you’re about to graduate, as long as you’re currently enrolled as a student. If you win a scholarship and have already graduated from school, the scholarship money will be used to pay for your remaining tuition debt or student loans. If you don’t have any outstanding loans, the scholarship money will be paid directly to you after you complete a W-9 form.
We suggest that you focus on your most recent internship, but you can include experiences from any internship that took place between January 2017 - August 2018.
Voting counts will be posted on our weekly contest leaderboard and updated daily. The leaderboard will display the top 50 entries with the most votes.
Yes! This is the first year that we're allowing high-schoolers to join the competition. If a high school student has interned at a construction company between January 2017 - August 2018 and plans to attend a college, university, or trade school, then they are eligible to compete.
You can submit up to 3 weekly scholarship entries for the same prompt.
