Introduction

Veterans Call is hosting an opportunity for kindness—one to help understand the devotion and selflessness of our nation’s Veterans. If you are a Veteran, a part of a military family or an ROTC student, we encourage you to join us in celebrating our Veterans by entering in the Veterans Call scholarship opportunity.

Veterans Call will award a $1000 scholarship to applicants who can tell us –with an image— your thoughts in 200 words or less of what being a Veteran means.

Prompt

We’ll award $1,000 to one of our Facebook or Instagram followers in college who share a photo and status, in 200 words or less, of what being a Veteran means. To be eligible the applicant must include the hashtag #WhatAVeteranLooksLike (not counted as part of your 200 words) and tag VeteransCall.
