Young Jeezy Offering Scholarship

Posted By on November 28, 2006

Young Jeezy and his label Corporate Thugz Entertainment are putting local Atlanta high school students to the test by offering a $1,000 scholarship to one lucky winner of an essay contest.

The rapper announced the "What Inspires You" Essay contest, in honor of his upcoming sophomore release The Inspiration. High School students in the metro Atlanta area can participate by submitting a 300 word or less essay explaining where their daily inspiration comes from.

The grand prize winner will receive a $1,000 scholarship, an autographed CD and poster and a pizza party for the winner's entire senior class.

CTE, which was launched in 1998 with partner Demetrius "Kinky B" Ellerbee, is also involving local Atlanta businesses that will provide goods and services to give the lucky winner the "ultimate Jeezy treatment."

Young Jeezy will personally deliver the grand prize to the winning student's school.

To enter the "What Inspires You" essay contest, mail an essay to Corporate Thugz Ent. Be sure to include your name, return address and telephone number. Students can also email: inspiration@corporatethugzent.com.

All entries must be postmarked by December 4th and the winner will be selected and notified by December 8.

Young Jeezy's The Inspiration hits stores December 12 on Corporate Thugz Entertainment/Def Jam.
