 High School Students Can Win a New Laptop

​The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), Coca-Cola, and the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) will award new laptops to 40 San Diego County high school students through their annual laptop scholarship contest.

Students in grades 9 to 12 can submit a persuasive essay outlining whether they think lower monthly passes will help more students ride MTS: why or why not? Identify three benefits and/or challenges for students when choosing transit. Include a minimum of two strategies for how MTS can encourage more students (ages 6 to 18) to ride public transit. Essays must be a minimum of 750 words and will be judged on four criteria.

Submissions are due April 7. Visit the MTS website for contest details and application information.
