These scholarships are for students who do not have time for essays but do have talents that deserve recognition.
"Everyone has unique, natural talents and interests. These scholarships reward students for their unique talents. To win thousands of dollars in scholarships from these organizations, students simply do what they do best, whether that is duck calling, drinking milk, or even welding. Writing on a designated topic is difficult, time-consuming, and stressful for many people. These scholarships are for students who do not have time for essays but do have talents that deserve recognition. Also, these scholarships are a great deal more fun to complete than any 500-word essay. Who wouldn't love to design their own prom dress using duct tape?!"
"I'm a student who has many talents. Creating this list, I'm happy to see that organizations want to reward natural talents other than writing. I plan to continue searching for scholarships that match even more of my talents, and I hope those who read this list will do the same."
