We recognize and reward students who are Active Leaders!

We are big believers in higher education (our CEO served on the Board of Trustees at Lehigh University after all) but we know it’s really expensive.  So we started a little college scholarship program to help one student make their college experience more affordable.  If you are a college student or are soon to become one, entering is easy.  Just write an essay between 500-1,000 words telling us why knowing what’s happening on campus is vital to your success as a student.  We will pick our favorite to award the $1,000 prize.  Winner will be chosen and announced on April 30th, 2014
