Law School Woes Could Win You $10K
Attention stressed-out law students: Now you can profit from your angst. Access Group, a nonprofit student loan company, is sponsoring a contest that will award $10,000 to the best law student video depicting what worries you in law school. Up all night studying? Can't find a summer job? Getting picked on by a professor? No money left to buy food? Whatever your woe, film it, upload it to YouTube, and enter it by June 15 in the One Less Worry Contest. Access Group will select 10 finalists and then open voting to the public on July 1. The recipient of the most votes by July 31 gets a $10,000 scholarship for the 2008-2009 academic year.
To enter, you must be enrolled as a law student as of Aug. 1, 2008. The 10 finalists will be selected based on creativity, humor, realism, quality and overall appeal. Videos can be no longer than four minutes. And then there's the fine print, like don't defame anyone or promote bigotry or racism. As the alleged law students in the video below caution, "Remember, this is a family show." Entries will be compiled at this YouTube page.
