I'm trying to win this scholarship for $15,000
Hi guys, my name is Kennedy. I'm an artist from Texas, I just graduated high school, and I'm hoping to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. It's my dream school, and I've been working obsessively since my sophomore year to earn enough scholarships to attend. I have just about covered half of tuition costs for my first year. I recently entered a competition sponsored by Fastweb for $15,000--it would cover the rest of my tuition this year.
Unfortunately, it's vote-based, and though it may seem that I am doing well (500+ votes), the reality is that some of those in the top ten have over 1000.
I wouldn't normally ask this of strangers, but I am so desperate at this point. My family and fiends are not very supportive; they say they will vote for me, but they tend to shrug it off and forget about it. I have been trying so hard to make them understand how important this is to me, but they just don't seem to listen. Most of my votes have come from my online friends, which I find rather depressing.
And so I'm coming to you as a last resort. Will you please vote for me? My entry is located here http://fastweb15years.com/entries/78/. You do need to register in order to vote, but I promise they don't send you spam or anything like that. You can vote once per day, and the contest ends July 2nd. Even if you just voted once, I would be incredibly thankful.
I know you don't have any reason to do this for me. But I just don't know where else to go. I want this so badly, I want to prove to my family that I can do this. If you could please just take a few minutes of your time, I would really appreciate it.
