At Juris Digital we’re passionate about helping people find answers to important questions. After all, search engine optimization (SEO) is, at it’s most basic, the process of helping people find webpages that answer their questions.
Given our current political climate of alternative facts and fake news, the ability to find truth on the web is more important than ever.
That’s why we’ve created the Juris Digital Search for Truth Scholarship Contest. The winner of the contest will be awarded $1,500 to put toward their high education.
We’re asking students to come up with a question that they are uniquely qualified to answer and then to create a website dedicated to answering that question better than any other source on the web.
The winner will be chosen based on the creativity of the website and the substance of the information.
- Applicants must be EITHER out-going high school seniors OR students currently enrolled in a college, trade school, or university as of the start of the spring 2018 semester
- Applicants must have a valid driver’s license or other official state ID
- Must submit essay by December 31, 2017
- Copy of your resume
- Copy of your transcript OR proof of enrollment
- Copy of driver’s license or other official ID
- Link to your Search for Truth website
To apply, please email the materials listed above to firstname.lastname@example.org by the application deadline of December 31, 2017.
What if I don’t know how to make a website?
Then this is a great time to learn! If you are unfamiliar with how to start a website, we suggest that you use WordPress.com to create a free website. WordPress has ample supporting documentation available online to help you through the process.
How should I choose the question to answer?
The most important thing is that you choose a question that you are well qualified to answer. For example, if you play the guitar you could answer “what are the best guitar chords to learn for beginners?”. If you’re a baseball player you could answer the question “what is the infield fly rule?”.
What is the deadline for submission?
Applications must be received by no later than December 31, 2017.
When will the winner be selected and notified?
A winner will be selected by no later than January 15, 2018.
