San Diego Christian College Student Letty Morales Won $1365!

Our scholarship winner, Letty Morales mobilized a Facebook network of over 1000 to 'like' her response to our scholarship question, which completely blew us away. Does Letty think that the value of a college degree is rising along with tuition prices? Here's what she had to say:

Letty Morales 1st place

A degree, even if tuition rises or not, is valuable to scholars. However, it is unfortunate for students to face budget cuts with school resources (fewer classes) when tuition is rising. If higher cost prevents students from getting a degree then the value of it will be treasured even more.

Letty Morales is attending San Diego Christian College where she plays soccer and studies communication. She is currently considering attending law school, but after her impressive performance in our scholarship contest, we think she has a future in social media marketing!

But Letty wasn't the only whose efforts impressed us. We were so overwhelmed by the responses our top 5 winners received that we decided to award them each a cash prize.

Close Second, Samuel Vega of Southwestern Adventist University

Samuel Vega 2nd Place

Our second place winner, Samuel Vega, is a student at Southwestern Adventist University, where he says that 'the teachers and staff care about me and my education.' With over 900 likes on his comment, Samuel lead a truly international effort in pursuit of our scholarship, we felt like we had to reward his hard work and it was a lot of fun to call him and say that he was getting $500 as our second place winner. Read his response to our scholarship question below:

YES, Tuition cost is rising. But the value of education is A LOT bigger. We have all heard the saying: 'the one thing no one can take from you is your education.' Your degree is worth far beyond $ value. It is worth the sacrifice.

Daniel Villalpando and Brooke Jodsaas of Valley City State University take 3rd and 4th

Both our third and fourth place winners attend the same college, Valley City State University and had only glowing things to say about their school.

Daniel Villalpando 3rd place
Brooke Jodsaas 4th place

Sally Palomino of Goodwin College narrows out her sister for 5th

As we were monitoring the progress of our front-runners towards the end of the scholarship, we noticed that two of them had the same last name: Palomino.

Sally Palomino 5th place
