Scholarship Alert: Write Essay on Transit, Compete to Win Laptop

The entry deadline for MTS' scholarship competition is April 12, but if high school seniors turn in their applications by March 15, they could win an iPad or monthly transit pass.

Entries are being accepted for the Metropolitan Transit System's 11th annual essay contest, in which 40 college-bound high school seniors will be awarded a laptop computer.

Participants must submit a 1,000-word essay on creative ways the MTS, which operates buses and the San Diego Trolley, can get people to take public transportation.

The entry deadline is April 12. However, students who turn in their application by March 15 could win an iPad or regional monthly transit pass.

Application forms can be downloaded at sdmts.com or picked up at the Transit Store at Broadway and First Avenue in downtown San Diego.

The contest is operated in conjunction with Coca-Cola Refreshments of San Diego and the San Diego County Office of Education.
