Share your moving stories for a chance to win $500 scholarship from Movers Corp! Whether you had a smooth, difficult or even funny moving experience, we'd like to hear it from you and award for it! People move all the time and for many reasons, and students are no exception. Everyone has a story and different experience. The main purpose of this scholarship is to help other students to avoid obstacles when relocating to a new residence.
Scholarship is available to all high school, college and university students.
One $500 scholarship will be awarded each semester; totaling 2 scholarships over the school year.
The scholarship could be renewed each year by submitting another entry.
The winners will be selected based on overall writing ability and the evaluation of tip/advice for students that are planning to move. The minimum requirement is that your story should include at minimum 500 words but not more than 800 words.
Here is what we'd like you to cover in your story:
1. Why did you move?

4. How did you move (hired a moving company, moved yourself, rented a moving truck and etc.)?
5. How was your experience?
