Castle Ink's Green Scholarship

Website: http://www.castleink.com/_ink-scholarship.html

Who's Eligible: Students age 13 and over

Award Amount: $1000

Due Date: This contest may not exist anymore (the last one was in 2011, and their last Paperless Scholarship was awarded in 2014), but keeping checking back to see if there are updates.


You must have a passion for environmental action and a host of online friends to win this one. Castle Ink's environmentally-friendly scholarship contest requires students to write something about recycling—length and style do not matter—then post it somewhere online with a link to castleink.com included. After it is posted, fill out the registration info here and wait for the hits to roll in. The student who walks away with this prize is the one whose post generates the most web traffic to the Castle Ink page.
