MDG’s Seventh Annual "Looking Beyond College" Scholarship Essay Contest.
MDG Advertising, one of the country’s most creative advertising agencies, wants to help you pay for college! We developed this scholarship essay contest for students who are seeking financial support for their college studies, but also would like a great opportunity to develop or enhance a creative writing portfolio.
Because clear and creative writing skills are essential for success in so many industries today, especially ours, we’re looking for compelling essays that creatively describe a student’s dream job after college. If you think you have what it takes to win MDG’s $1,000 scholarship, then we invite you to enter today! Check out our blog featuring last year's winner!
Get ready to impress our judges and move one step closer to landing the scholarship. In 700 to 1000 words, describe your ideal job after college (it doesn’t have to be in advertising). Highlight your unique qualities and give a thoughtful and creatively written explanation about why you think the job would fulfill you and what skills you have that would lead you to success in your chosen field.
MDG’s judges will select the top-scoring essay based on its creativity and writing excellence.
The winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to be used for tuition, room & board, books, or technology acquisition.
