Once again, the competition was fierce. And it was difficult for the Foreclosure.com team to narrow down the selections to the top 25 essays out of more than 9,000 submissions. But we did it, sending the top 25 essays to then be judged by college professors located throughout the country, who narrowed down the selection to one finalist and four semifinalists.
Foreclosure.com would like to thank the five winners, as well as all the participants who submitted essays to the competition.
If you are a student who was unable to enter the competition in 2011 don't dismay. Foreclosure.com is happy to announce its fourth scholarship currently in progress. We expect even greater success with our 2012 scholarship program.
