Video Entry Criteria
In place of an essay, this year we request that you send us a short (c. 30-45 seconds) video giving insight into who you are and what makes you unique.

Professional quality videos are neither expected nor required. You can use your phone. Be thoughtful about your production and have fun with it. Please note: these videos will be used at our April 18, 2019 awards luncheon as a means of introducing scholarship winners.

BBB must receive entries by 4:30pm on January 31, 2019.

Submit your completed digital entry or mail a hard copy version of it typed on 8.5” x 11” paper. Entries must be received by BBB prior to the deadline in order to qualify. All entries become the property of BBB. If submitting hard copy application, send to:
