DialMyCalls, Jupiter, Florida-based mass notification service, is bringing back its Twitter-inspired "Tweet For Success Scholarship Contest" - college students can enter to win one of four $500 scholarships.

The first annual "Tweet For Success Scholarship Contest" was held in 2013 by DialMyCalls and it was met with an overwhelming amount of submissions from college students. Last year students were asked to, in 140 characters or less, explain how advances in technology have helped improve the education system. Over 11,000 Twitter-inspired explanations were submitted and after a long debate, four winners were selected to receive a $500 scholarship. Check out the four winners from last year's contest and view their winning tweets here.

College students are getting ready for the upcoming 2014 Fall semester and DialMyCalls is proud to announce that beginning today, the 2014 "Tweet For Success Scholarship Contest" is live. This year students will be asked to, in 140 characters or less, explain the pros and cons of e-books versus traditional textbooks. Once again a total of $2000 will be awarded to four college students that will be attending school during the upcoming Fall semester – each winner will receive $500.

Are you the king or queen of Twitter? Do you look at the word “tweet” and scratch your head? Regardless of your social media prowess, DialMyCalls' scholarship contest is a quick and easy way to win $500 to put towards your college education. Typical scholarships require long and drawn out essays while the Tweet For Success Scholarship Contest requires an entry of 140 characters or less – who would not set aside five minutes of their time for a chance at that cash?
