Give them cake

So Zinch is doing this short-answer essay scholarship each week. This week’s prompt is:

“What would you do to decrease the amount of violence seen in schools?”

My answer: “I would give everyone a slice of their favorite kind of cake if they promise to not fight anymore. Cake makes people happy. Happy people are less likely to be violent.”

Everyone else talked about setting up programs to get people to be less violent or have people talk to the students. Well that sounds great and all, but cake sounds way more appealing. I WIN. Haha.

Scholarships

Ugh scholarships. I hope I win some money. Then my efforts won’t be in vain. There’s just always someone better than me that wins. Darn you amazing people. Congratulations, though. I wish you the best.

Here are the websites I use for finding scholarships and college info:
FastWebHighly recommend it. It has so much info about college stuff and tons of scholarships that match up with your interests.

Scholarships.com– It’s very similar to FastWeb, but I have found that this website has some scholarships that FastWeb does not.

Cappex– Great website for seeing how likely you are to make it into the colleges and universities you are interested in. They offer scholarships too.

ZinchHighly recommend it. This website is awesome! Colleges try to recruit you and get you interested in their school. Zinch tells you about scholarships and offers some of its own. Zinch’s motto is “I am more than a test score” because Zinch is all about colleges picking you for the REAL you and not your score on the SAT or ACT.
