Description

There are plenty of scholarships for the athletic, the intelligent, minorities, the handicapped, the needy. We think it is time to have a scholarship for the "Everyday Joe" or "Plain Jane." We think you are just as special. In 400-500 words, tell us what makes you the most vanilla/boring person in the world. Each month we establish a winner and announce the name as well as post the essay to serve as a model for others. Every May we will judge the 12 winners to see who wins the $700 dollar scholarship.
