Better Business Bureau offers $10,000 scholarship

Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington has officially launched the 2015 Students of Integrity Scholarship. High school seniors in the Northwest will have a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship by creating a 90-second video that demonstrates how BBB helps people become smart consumers.

“BBB values the importance of higher education and teens who personify high ethics,” BBB CEO Tyler Andrew said. “We believe this scholarship will enable a student to pursue both in a fun and creative way.”

Students can check their eligibility and apply online. A panel of judges from all three states will choose the winning entry in March. The deadline to apply is January 30, 2015.

The winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship and travel expenses to Portland where BBB will present him or her with a check at the March 28 Portland Trail Blazers game at the Moda Center.

Students may apply individually or in groups. The video entries of the top 15 finalists will be posted on BBB’s YouTube channel for public viewing.
