Our partner, Semester At Sea (SAS), will be offering the winner of the contest full tuition for a study abroad voyage once they are enrolled in a university. The winner will embark on an approximately 100-day study abroad program that will involve taking classes aboard the SAS ship and earning academic credit from Colorado State University, traveling the world during class breaks, and making life-long memories. The winning essayist will also receive a $2,500 cash prize, and an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to meet the U.S. Secretary of State.
