Allianz launches 2017 ScholarTrips contestFor the 13th consecutive year, Allianz Global Assistance‘s ScholarTrips scholarship contest is on.

Here’s what you—or your child, nephew/friend, etc.—need to know:

How to enter:
Students must submit a 500-word essay or a 60-to-90-second video (WMV, MOV or MP4) responding to the following prompt: Who your ideal travel companion is (can be living or dead), where you would go, and why.

Essays and videos can be submitted on this page.

Contest dates:
The contest will run from October 6 through November 6, 2017. Winners will be announced—and winning entries will be posted—on or around December 20.
