Bulletin Boards and Scholarships
This may seem old school, but whenever you pass bulletin boards take a few seconds and see if anything catches your eye. I can’t tell you that you will find a scholarship, but there are plenty of opportunities during a year that can increase your chances of winning an award that other people will miss. This can be at your college, high school, post office, community center or local library. Speaking events in your area, department internships, and part-time jobs are sometimes posted in the weirdest places, so keep you eyes up and active. You may check 30 different boards over the course of 6 months, but you may find an opportunity that will change the trajectory of your life…the worst thing that can happen is you waste 1 minute of your life (x) 30 bulletin boards. Can you risk it!?
Assignment: Find a friend and go to a random bulletin board with the intention of doing one thing listed there. I guarantee you will learn something…even if it’s that you don’t like Canadian polka music.
