Aveda Institute Canada BORN TO STYLE Scholarship Contest

My friends at the Aveda Institute asked me if I would share their BORN TO STYLE Scholarship Contest with you guys and of course I said yes!

If you or any of your friends are thinking about becoming a Hair Stylist then you should enter for your chance to win FREE TUITION!  Who doesn’t want to go to school for free?  And trust me, student loans are great when you get them but I’m still paying off mine… 10 years later!

What’s even better is that there will be four grand prize winners of full tuition at one of their top hair schools in Toronto, Calgary,
Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg.

Here’s the info you need and click HERE to go to the contest site

WHAT IS IT?
Aveda Institute is offering up four full scholarships to their hair schools in five different cities across Canada. To win, the contestant must submit a video explaining in a convincing manner (and showing perhaps some sizzle ) why they are “Born to Style”. Winners will be selected by a panel of top celebrity judges from each of the five cities (Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto).

STEP 1: MAKE A VIDEO
Create a video to show us why you are BORN TO STYLE and why you’ve got the talent, passion and determination it takes to develop your  hairstyling skills with the Aveda Institute Canada.

STEP 2: UPLOAD & SHARE
Visit www.avedainstitute.ca/scholarship to enter the contest. Upload your video then share your entry with the world! Share your Aveda Institute entry page link with all your family, friends, fans and followers and get them to rate your video. Share your talent with the world!

STEP 3: HAIR SHOWDOWN
Beauty industry professionals hand pick five aspiring hairstylists in each city to advance to the final round. These future hairdressers will  participate in a live head-to-head competition and runway show putting together a complete look in front of a panel of style experts and hairstyling heavy hitters.  The winner in each city will be awarded a full scholarship to the Aveda Institute hair school!

And cause I want one of you guys to win here’s some tips on how videos will be judged:

>> >> Boldness and clarity of artistic vision

>> >> Originality and creativity

>> >> Demonstrates candidate is fashion forward and understands the Aveda mission

>> >> Overall Impression

 

Last day to submit a video is March 31st, 2012 at 11:59:59 a.m. ET
