PHOENIX, Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, thousands of Arizona students apply for college scholarship money or sign up for student loans. To help make higher education more accessible, Arizona Dairy Farmers have been awarding $30,000 annually through their Arizona Milk Producers Scholarship Contest. The main requirements are simply donning a milk mustache and featuring a dairy product, with the creativity and photo theme left up to the students. To upload a milk mustache for the chance to win scholarship money, click here: arizonamilk.org/scholarship.
Last year's grand prize winner, Jake from Peoria, earned $12,000 to help pay for his education at Arizona State University. He staged his photo at Chase Field, where a gallon of milk featured on the Jumbotron was pouring farm-fresh milk into the glass he was holding. The message in the photo is clear – Milk is my MVP, with "minerals, vitamins and protein" listed below. This delivers on part of the contest goal: to showcase the benefits of dairy and the active role it plays in fueling minds and bodies to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Arizona residents who are or will be enrolled in a post-secondary school (university, college or community college) for the 2018 fall term can enter starting today and could win one of three scholarships: The first-place winner will receive a $12,000 scholarship, the second-place winner will receive $10,000 and the third-place winner will receive $8,000.
"Our contest doesn't require a ton of paperwork or an extensive application process because we want the process to be fun and turnkey for students. The effort and time truly lies in the creativity and photo themes students dream up," said Tammy Baker, General Manager for Arizona Milk Producers.
