Info on the Technology Scholarship from ATTSavings.com. Find out what the eligibility requirements are and deadline.
This scholarship from ATTSavings.com is on a slightly controversial topic. For those of you with DVRs who love skipping through commercial, this scholarship asks you to respond to the issue of whether or not DVRs cut into the TV advertisement revenue. As we all know, broadcasters earn money by advertisements but if an increasing amount of consumers are allowed to skip commercials, it’ll obviously diminish the effectiveness of that investment. As easy scholarships come, this one is quite simple for those who enjoy blogging. They ask that you write a 300-500 word post dealing with this topic. The blog post should be posted on your website or blog (WordPress, Blogger, Livejournal, etc) and your entry must be submitted by December 1.
Eligibility for this scholarship requires that you have at least a 2.5 GPA out of a 4 point scale (high school or college students) and be a US citizen. The online application simply requires you to provide your name, email address, the website where your blog post can be found and comments if you have any. Blogging is a popular medium to get your opinion and views in the limelight. There is certainly a market for DVRs that allow consumers to skip commercials, but in order for television networks to continue to afford bringing programming in demand, they need to make money by allowing companies to advertise. If things continue the way they are, perhaps network broadcasters will promote brands during the actual shows? I know that’s a tad far-fetched, but this is just one example of all the positive and negative points that you can bring up in your blog post.
