Woman's Day Contest


Although scholarships are the major source of money for college, don't overlook the many opportunites for cash via magazine contests.
The September issue of Woman's Day has a 1st prize of $5,000, 2nd place of $500 American Express Gift Card and ten runner-up winners will receive $100 in American Cexpress Gift Cards.
OK, so this is what you need to do:
Then read the magazine and tell them what you liked and what you didn't like.  What topics do you wish they would cover?
