Prizes: 1 grand prize winner (up to $200k) will be paid out $25k per semester for 4 years + 2 smaller winners (1 up to $20k, 1 up to $10k) will be paid out in the Fall of 2018, (1 time payment).

Students could apply, or a parent/grandparent/best friend/guardian/aunt/uncle could apply on a students' behalf (that was Derrick's mom's idea!)

The student needed to have:

  • Motivation. Ambition. Drive. Creativity. Organization.
