If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, enter the Blaze Wifi Rural Students Essay Contest to win $500 to help pay for your college costs! Blaze Wifi is offering an annual $500 college scholarship to help further higher education and improve internet literacy and connectivity in small towns and rural cities across America.

Writing, blogging and sharing thoughts and ideas online is one of the best ways for rural students living in remote areas of the United States to connect to the outside world, expand their knowledge base and participate in a large and active online community.
Blaze Wifi offers this scholarship with the sincere hope that the winner will return to their hometown after graduation and help develop rural and underserved towns and cities in America.
To apply simply write an in-depth blog post which explains how having Internet access helped you or someone you know develop as a young person and student growing up in a rural community. THe entry should be no more than 1,000 words.
