TicketCity Annual College Scholarship Program

TicketCity loves college sports. From the first tailgate party of football season to the final round of March Madness, they can’t get enough of it. Focus is almost always on the student-athletes, but they know it wouldn’t be the same without the support of the student-fans. Every school has its own unique traditions and they want to hear why those traditions are so special to you.

This is why they created the TicketCity Annual College Scholarship Program. They want to thank the students for turning an ordinary game into a tradition-rich, high-energy event that will be remembered forever. All you have to do is write an essay about something you already love, the college sports experience and earn $3,000 to help pay for school.

Choose from one of the 3 essay subject options below and write a 400 – 700 word essay. The essay doesn’t have to be too formal – they want to hear your voice! Write something funny, something sentimental, talk about your game day traditions or whatever feels right to you. You’ll need to include a picture or video that supplements your essay. Be creative! They want your essays, pictures and videos to reflect the excitement you feel from the event you write about. All pictures and videos need to be appropriate, so please keep the content family-friendly.
