You Could Win $2,000 by Sharing Your Story

Heads Up America is hosting a #FreeCommunityCollegeStory video competition on Instagram, and the winner will receive $2,000! The deadline to enter is Sunday, October 2.

The competition is an effort to highlight as many of community college students’ powerful stories as possible. The Heads Up America movement is a grass-roots effort to spread the word about the value of community college and to support America’s College Promise.

Entering the competition is easy.

  • Create a one-minute video about your community college story.
  • Post it on Instagram with the hashtag #FreeCommunityCollegeStory.
  • Follow @HeadsUpAmerica on Instagram and tag them in your post.
  • Vote for your favorite video on the Heads Up Instagram page October 3-9.

The winner gets $2,000, the average cost per semester of a community college education. There will be prizes for runners up as well.
