Submissions need to be emailed to scholarships[AT]a1autotransport[DOT]com, along with the student’s name, contact information and name of the school they will attend in 2019. Entries will then be uploaded onto the company’s website where people will have the opportunity to read and vote on the entries they most like.
Once the submission is published, entrants are encouraged to let their friends know about the entry so they can read it, and vote on it if they wish.
The most outstanding essay as judged by popular vote will win a scholarship package of $1,000, $500, and $250 from A-1 Auto Transport, with the money being sent directly to the financial office for tuition at the school the winning student attends.
