Oh my goodness, I LOVE This!!! Esp timely for me since my hubby and I just watched the last episode of Season 7 GoT last night!!! Will def have to have my girls revisit this one when they are older – I can only imagine the sorts of things they would come up with!!!
It is certainly a really fun scholarship! 🙂
Told them about it at dinner the other night. They love the idea. Told them to get cracking on their essay ideas – at 8 and 6, they have VERY active imaginations, so they’ve got time to polish those ideas lol!
They sound amazing!
Thank you for the scholarship info. My daughter wrote an essay for this Zombie Apocalpse but the link keeps sending us to a Unigo website to register and won’t allow us to because every email we use to sign up it says that there is already an account with that name. (we’ve tried 3 different ones so far) Do you have a link for the actual submission site and not just Unigo? Thanks for your help. She worked very hard on this and will be so disappointed if she can’t submit it correctly on time.
Hi Colleen, this scholarship is hosted by Unigo, so there is no other way to submit it. I would use the contact box here to get ahold of them and tell them what is going on with your daughter’s account. If they don’t respond in a few days, let me know and I will reach out via social media on your behalf.
