A $1000 Digital Marketing Scholarship

scholarship WildProofGear

At WildProofGear, our mission is to provide engaging, quality reviews of the latest gadgets and products in a number of categories, from Multi-Tools to Sleeping Bags. Our goal is to craft informative and authentic guides that can help end users find the piece of gear that is right for their own adventure, whether it’s backpacking through the Rocky Mountains or navigating the unpredictable urban landscape.

After all, there’s a lot of gear out there, and it never hurts to have a little help when deciding what your next piece of gear or equipment is going to be.

Now, WildProofGear is looking for a way to give a little something back. We are pleased to formally announce our WildProofGear Digital Marketing Scholarship Award.  For us, it’s a way to invest in the future of our community. For the right student, it’s a way to help pay for the ballooning costs of higher education.

We know how expensive continuing education can be. Between rent, tuition, and book costs, it is a wonder how anyone can afford to go to college anymore. Our $1,000 Digital Marketing Scholarship might only be a small chunk of the overall costs, but it could be enough to keep the right student in the classroom, where they should be.

If you are currently studying in the areas of Marketing, Business, IT or Communications, we’d love to hear from you. Even if you don’t consider yourself an expert in Digital Marketing, this could be the perfect opportunity to shave a cool $1,000 off the top of your schooling costs.

Terms for Participation

The WildProofGear Digital Marketing Scholarship Award is open to currently enrolled high school students or students who are enrolled in a college, trade school, or university.

Entering is simple. Each contestant will be asked to submit a 500-1000 word essay on the topic, “Digital Marketing and its Importance in 2019.”

In the essay, we ask all applicants to address the following topics in a creative and thoughtful way:

  • How companies can take advantage of Digital Marketing
  • Why Digital Marketing is Important for Companies or Product Owners

The applicant with the winning essay will receive $1000, which can be utilized for education resources like room & board, tuition, or those pesky textbooks that seem to be getting more and more expensive with every year.

Eligibility and Creativity

Those candidates are eligible who are High school seniors or students who are currently enrolled in a college, trade school, or university.

Your essay must be 100% unique and written specifically for this contest. Application essays will be graded and judged based on several factors including creativity, thoughtfulness, information value, & readability, among others.

What we are really looking for is passionate students to tell us what Digital Marketing is really all about, and why businesses and product owners alike should be paying a little bit more attention.  Be creative, but also be concise. Remember that the best essays are the ones that get the point across in a clear and up-front way, without a bunch of extra “filler” ideas.

Eligible applicants will start by writing and essay of 500-1000 words on the topic of “Importance of Digital Marketing in 2019.” Successful applicants will address the more specific topics of how companies can take advantage of digital marketing and why digital marketing is so important, to business owners and consumers alike.
