The American Lung Association of Minnesota and the Minnesota Soybean Association are sponsoring some scholarships for students in Minnesota who write winning essays about biodiesel.

The Clean Air Choice Scholarships provide money for students with the intent to raise awareness of the emerging alternative fuel:

The first place essay writer will receive a $500 scholarship; the second place essay writer will receive a $250 scholarship.”

Students can write the 1,000-word essays about any aspect of biodiesel. They can also choose from one of three topics… 1. Biodiesel’s benefits to Minnesota… 2. Expanding biodiesel’s use: opportunities and challenges… or 3. How can you impact biodiesel use in your area?
