Mental Floss Wants To Give Away $50,000 In Scholarships

I get quite a few American and Canadian visitors here - so this one's for you.

Over at Mental Floss they have a competition running where they're giving away $50,000 of scholarships if you can write a good enough essay.

"The Contest: In 750 words or less, explain why you (as the most deserving person on the planet) should win a $10,000 prize for tuition/books in the fall of 2009. The contest is open to full-time students pursuing an undergraduate degree at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university in the U.S. or Canada in the fall of 2009. Essays must be original work and should reflect the tone of mental_floss magazine. Winning essays must be truly memorable. They should be easy-to-read, funny, quirky and creative without being pretentious. Just (we hope) like mental_floss magazine. The prizes will be awarded on the overall quality of your essay."

Pop over to their blog page for further details and T&Cs and an entry form.
