Flavor of the Month Scholarship Winners

ScholarshipExperts.com is pleased to announce the winners of the Flavor of the Month Scholarship Program.

 

2014 Winner

For 2014, our Flavor of the Month Scholarship question is: “Summer and ice cream go hand-in-hand. In fact, July is National Ice Cream Month and that’s the inspiration behind this award. We think people are very similar to ice cream; some are nutty, others a little exotic, while some are very comforting. If you were an ice cream flavor, which would you be and why?”

Students can access the 2014 Flavor of the Month Scholarship application online until July 31, 2014 at 11:59 pm EDT.

Information about the 2014 scholarship winner and winning scholarship response will be updated here on or around October 31, 2014.

Jessica G.

Only one flavor of ice cream best describes me.

It’s scarce and uncommon; unlikely heard of or seen.

Very unique in its color and labeled that name, so bold and shapely it reels without shame.

This fruits outer skin needn’t be removed.

It is delicate and soft and may be consumed.

With insides emblazoned with red and yellow, this luscious produce is perfect and mellow.

And after you thought your indulgence was done, there’s a surprise in the middle that can be some fun.

This wrinkly seed holds a future inside.

Plant and nourish it as time dances by.

If you water and pamper with relentless love, that seed will grow to the skies above.

Amazing in itself, this fruit is much like our race: Flourishing and growing with each beautiful face.

Getting bumped and bruised in the process of life, but aiming to please as it would suffice.

So if you ever ask what flavor is mine, I’ll say: “Life is just peachy and the ice cream is divine.”

We walk, hand in hand, through the park as I silently savor my ice cream cone. Without reason, we take a seat on a bench, overlooking the peaceful lake, and take in the serenity that surrounds us. He looks at me. “I guess it really is true: you are what you eat.” “I’m ice cream?” I flash him a puzzled look. “Yes, my love, but more specifically: a vanilla ice cream cone.” I maintain my look of confusion, and he continues, “At first glance, you seem so simple, and this simplicity never fails to make me smile. You remind me what it feels like to be a kid again, young and carefree.” A smile creeps across my face as he talks, and I anxiously await more. “It takes a brave soul to really dive in and discover how complex you really are, because,” he states very matter-of-factly, “you are blocked by a crunchy waffle cone exterior.” A giggle escapes my lips at his analogy. “But, once you crack past that, you can really start to enjoy everything you have to offer. There is the occasional vanilla bean which is a pleasant surprise.” He looks me in the eyes, “You are always full of surprises, my dear. “ “And more importantly than all that, I take one look at you and I feel joy. You are, and will always be, my home.” It is with those words that I, very much like a vanilla ice cream cone, melt into his hands.
