What does a credit score mean to you? Write about it and you could win $5,000

Lexington Law, the trusted leader in helping people repair their credit reports understands the importance of financial planning and maintaining a great credit score, especially for college students. For this reason, the company is pleased to offer the “Lexington Law Scholarship Award” fund. Affording college can be a challenge. With the increasing costs of tuition, books, housing, utilities, food, etc., students need all the help they can get. Sometimes that means taking out a loan or using a credit card to cover costs. Taking on debt may be unavoidable to complete an education, but students can learn to avoid harming their credit scores in the process.

Interested students are asked to write an essay of no fewer than 800 words about what a credit score means to them, how it impacts their financial future, and how they plan to obtain and retain a great credit score during their college years. Competitive candidates will describe and demonstrate knowledge of credit scores, connect the importance of college years to a credit score, and discuss why improving the candidate’s credit score can improve his or her future. YouTube submissions are strongly encouraged, although not required. 

Entries must be submitted by February 28, 2015 for spring entrants. One winner will be selected by March 9, 2015.  The fall scholarship deadline is August 31, 2015.
