KFC is taking the application process for its KFC Colonel’s Scholars program to the Twitterverse. Starting today through November 26, high school seniors can try to win a $20,000 Colonel’s Scholars scholarship by drafting a single tweet, 140 characters or less.
KFC is asking college hopefuls to tweet why they exemplify Colonel Sanders commitment to education and enriching their communities, and why they are deserving of a college scholarship. The scholarship winner, announced on December 1, will receive up to $5,000 per year for the next four years to pursue a bachelors degree at an accredited public university within his or her home state. Tweets will be reviewed after November 26 to determine that applicants comply with proper eligibility requirements, and the winner will be announced on December 1.
