According to the Unigo website, “One is the loneliest number. Three is a crowd. Then there is five. What’s so special about five? Well, for starters, this lucky number could help you win a $1,500 scholarship.” Do you have special feelings for the number five? If so, the Fifth Month Scholarship is just perfect for you!

How do you enter?
Submit an online written response to the question:
“May is the fifth month of the year. Write a letter to the number five explaining why five is important. Be serious or be funny. Either way, here’s a high five to you for being original.”
In 250 words or less, respond the prompt with a WOW answer. Maybe you are thinking, “oh, 250 words, that’s an easy write,” but au contraire. The less words allowed makes it more of a challenge to express your response in a lively and meaningful way. So, what’s our point here? Give yourself plenty of time to respond. Read the essays of previous winners so that you can see what the judges are looking for in winning essays. Good luck, and here’s a virtual high five to winning!
