Students looking for a little help with continuing education costs should look to biodiesel. The Clean Air Choice® Biodiesel Scholarship contest offers high school seniors awards to help with college. Now in the eighth year of the program, students may submit a short video of three minutes or less or a brief essay of 1,000 words or less about biodiesel to the American Lung Association in Minnesota. Rules and online applications are available at www.CleanAirChoice.org.
All entries will be judged on the following criteria: accuracy of information; a thorough understanding of biodiesel and its uses; and creative thinking and original ideas on biodiesel.
Two scholarships will be awarded: a first place award of $1,000 and a second place award of $500. All high school seniors in Minnesota public or private schools are eligible for the scholarship. All essays and videos must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 7, 2017. The scholarship is sponsored by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
