Are you a high school junior or senior? Or are you currently a student attending a US college or university? If so, we would like to feature your story in our ‘Why College Matters’ series. We are looking for students willing to share what inspires them about attending college. If you are in high school or just about to start college, we are interested in hearing about your college aspirations. And if you are already in college, perhaps, you can tell us about your college experience and inspire others who might want to follow in your footsteps.

Interested? Read on to find out how you can participate.  

What does college mean to you? Be a star, share your story for a chance to win $100 and inspire other students. 

College Mouse is collecting stories from high school and college students to be featured on our site. To enter, simply answer a few questions (more details below) about your school/college and your career goals. We will review the entries at the end of each month and the best will be featured here on our site and through our social media channels.
