We love rock stars. For this scholarship topic, we want to hear about your awesome money story. Tell us about that time you did something extraordinary with money.

It could be a side hustle you started in high school with your buddies. It could be about the time you helped raise money for a worthy cause. Or maybe you learned how to invest when you were a kid and you made an investment in a stock that went up.

We’re looking for a unique story that shows what you accomplished and why. How did that experience shape you as a person? What did you learn? What can you share with others so they can also learn from your story?

Because this is an essay contest, we’re also looking for sharp writing skills, so grammar and spelling count! Write in the first person and wow us with your story. First place winner gets their story published on Well Kept Wallet and on our social channels, in addition to winning a sweet, sweet, $1,000 prize.
