In 2014, American Advisors Group, the leading reverse mortgage lender in the nation, challenged high school seniors and college students across the country to submit an essay for a chance to win a $1000 scholarship. The prompt was as follows:
In 800 words or less, tell us why it is important to save money. How does saving money relate to social, political, or environmental challenges?
There were over 600 submissions and it was not easy to choose just one winner, but in the end American Advisors Group chose their favorite response.
American Advisors Group is pleased to announce the winner of our 2015 American Advisors Group College Scholarship Essay:
