The media is no longer in the hands of a few influential individuals. That's a good thing, but now we all need to be more media wise, especially for young people about to enter the workplace. To encourage this Media Minded has decided to launch an outstanding media awareness award for students.
We offer two annual scholarships of $500. Students who wish to apply should create a three to four minute video briefly discussing the merits of media awareness and showcasing a situation or situations where they have demonstrated outstanding media awareness. They should also explain the benefits have flowed from their media awareness.

This award is only available to students that are currently enrolled at a college, university, high school or trade school.
