The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), Coca-Cola and the San Diego County Office of Education will be giving away 40 laptops this spring as part of the annual High School Laptop Scholarship Essay Contest.

The laptops will be given to the top essay entries submitted by students enrolled in a San Diego County High School (grades 9-12), now through April 8, 2018.

The top 40 essay writers will be awarded a 15.6” HP Touch-Screen laptop and a Storm Contender laptop backpack by Under Armour.

To be eligible to win, students must submit a completed application form along with a persuasive essay between 750 and 1,200 words arguing some of the reasons why San Diego residents should choose public transit instead of driving a personal vehicle.

Essays will be scored on persuasiveness, clarity, creativity and word count.

All entries are due by Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Entries can be emailed to scholarship@sdmts.com

Or mailed/delivered to MTS, Attn: Laptop Scholarship, 1255 Imperial Avenue, Suite 1000, San Diego CA 92101.

Please note: MTS offices are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will be closed on Friday, March 30, 2018 in honor of Cesar Chavez Day.
