I have been selected as a finalist in the 2012 Blogging Scholarship! First off I can’t believe there is a scholarship available to those who are currently enrolled in an accredited university that also maintain a blog. Second, that it is worth $10,000.00 dollars…yes you read that right Ten Thousand Dollars! And third that I was selected as a finalist. Thank you to all who nominated me, it is truly appreciated.
As you know going back to school at the age of 29 (now almost 31) wasn’t an easy decision for myself or for our household. I am enrolled full-time and money has been tight. Each year, like many others I struggle to find ways to pay for school. I’m not young enough to be on my parents tax returns which makes filling out the FAFSA forms a little more stressful. I try to apply to as many scholarships that I can, but sadly there aren’t many for people my age. The majority of scholarships out there are for those right out of high school. So when this opportunity came up I jumped in with both feet and I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Winning this scholarship would be a huge help in letting me finish my senior year of college and one step closer to obtaining my degree in Culinary Nutrition from my dream school, Johnson & Wales University and then applying to Dietetic Internships which will lead to me taking the Registered Dietitian Exam!!

You are welcome to encourage people to vote for you on your site & through any other channel, though we ask is that the votes are done by humans (not bots). Last year someone tried using a bot & we upgraded the script to prevent that from working + track the votes via a number of parameters to ensure the competition is fair.
Voting is open until November 28th at noon Pacific & anyone can vote once per day (on a side note, not sure if you can vote once per day per device such as computer, phone etc. so give it a shot!).

The winner is selected based on popular vote
Thank you all again, it is truly appreciated!!
