Two weeks remain for local students to apply for college scholarships

Foxborough, MA - Only two weeks remain to apply for the 2010 New England Patriots Write On Scholarship, which gives local students the opportunity to win up to $10,000 each in college scholarship funds. New England residents between the ages of 13 and 18 are eligible to enter the contest, which promotes creative writing and good citizenship through volunteerism.

Along with a creative essay about the most recent Patriots season, students will be asked to provide information about their own volunteer experiences and why giving back to the community is important for people of all ages. This spring, 28 students will be awarded a total of $60,000 in scholarships, with one $10,000 grand prize, a $7,500 runner-up prize, a $5,000 honorable mention prize, and 25 $1,500 recognition prizes.

The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation has awarded nearly $400,000 in college scholarships over the past four years through the Write On Scholarship program. Official rules and the downloadable scholarship application can be found online at The deadline to enter is March 31, 2010.
