If the student is an editor’s choice recipient, he or she will receive a $50 scholarship plus the editors’ choice prize money. Proof of college, university, or school enrollment at the time the student submitted the story is required for the student to be eligible for this award.

The P.L. Titus Scholarship and the Editors’ Choice Scholarship winners are free to use their award money any way the winners choose.
