Scholarships are something high school seniors are encouraged to pursue, so a Sugar Land young man submitted a photo. Yes, a photo of his blue eyes. The Prevent Blindness organization is sponsoring a national scholarship contest. The contest runs the entire month of August. There will be a winner selected for each state along with a national winner who will be awarded a $10,000 scholarship.
Michael Breton, a 17 year old senior is one of the older contestants but he is hopeful that his big Texas blue eyes will help him win this scholarship. Michael has dreams of becoming a physical therapist; this scholarship will certainly help him in fulfilling this dream.
The Beautiful Eyes scholarship photos are posted on social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter. Voters select their favorite photo and may vote daily the entire month of August. The state winners will be advanced to the national competition.
The voting can be done on Facebook & Twitter.
