WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 25, 2013
WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Contest winners from colleges
across the country have been chosen in the 21st Century Insurance College
Scholarship contest. The 21 winners met the criteria of not just classroom
work, but also their dedication to volunteer and non-profit community work
outside of the classroom in their communities, towns and the world.
Twenty of the twenty-one total scholarship recipients received $550 each
toward their college expenses. The grand prize winner, Marissa Akery, a senior
at the University of Georgia, was awarded $10,000. Akery, who plans to use her
winnings toward her upcoming study abroad semester in Spain, serves as a
University Ambassador, a Friends for Life mentor and a Girl Scout Troop
Leader. Like many of her fellow entrants, Akery believes her volunteer and
non-profit contributions are as important to those she serves as they are to
her personal growth.
"You could tell from the amazing stories and photographs we received that
these were genuinely dedicated citizens and students, all of whom truly want
to make a difference in the lives of others," said Brian Borkowski, Online
Marketing Manager at 21st Century Insurance. "It was hard to pick only one
grand prize winner, but Marissa's story is a great representation of the
caliber of entrants we attracted."
