Has college tuition got you down? Are you wanting to show off your wordsmithing skills to the some of the folks at one of the best magazines out there? Are you a full-time undergraduate student at a two or four-year college? Well, we might have a solution for you…

mental_floss has teamed up with Borders and Miriam Webster are offering you a chance to win one of five (5) $10,000 scholarships in their College Ain’t Cheap Tuition Giveaway. You’ll write an essay of no more than 750 words talking about why you should win one of the prizes (in the style of mental_floss of course), usable on tuition and/or books in Fall 2009. If you don’t win one of the first prizes, the consolation prize is pretty cool itself. You really don’t want to start practicing procrastinating (you may do a lot of that when you get to college, though I wouldn’t suggest that), so enter now (the contest ends on January 31)!

Thanks for posting this! It's a fantastic opportunity for some no-strings attached money. And how often in life do you get that shot?
