How do I apply?
- Print, sign and mail the disclosure on the bottom of the page to:
Kelly Law Team
1 East Washington Street #500
Phoenix, AZ 85004
- Submit a 600-850 word article (in Microsoft Word) providing your “story”. This can be why you deserve to win, how this can affect your life, anything, but it should be inspirational and ideally grab peoples attention.
- (Optional) Submit a video with your article.
- Article must be submitted by 6/30/2015
Who will be chosen for the scholarships?
Once we receive your disclosure, your article and your video (if you submit one) we will post the information to a page on our site. We will send you the link to the page and more specifics on what we are looking for and tips on how to win.
However, the winners will be those people who get the most “activity” related to their story. Ideally your story would go viral, but obviously you could share with your social media friends, your email list, etc.
Since total activity is the objective, you might decide to be funny with your article/video, maybe serious or inspirational. Whatever you think will drive the most attention to your story.
