You’ve all heard the words: “dream job.” Maybe it’s editing a documentary film, or coding an awesome mobile app. Or perhaps it’s teaching Math, designing book covers, or managing a restaurant. Whatever your dream job is, chances are that it may take some time to get there. After all, practice makes perfect. Right?
We all know that both our work and our words have the potential to transform our lives. So Power Poetry is teaming up with Rock Your Block (www.rockyourblock.com), a mobile social app that connects teens to employment and volunteer opportunities, for our latest scholarship slam: One Job…May Change My Life. Tell us what type of job could change your life to win $1000 for college. Sound too good to be true? Don’t worry. It isn’t.
Here are some questions to think about: what type of job could transform your life path? How would you get that job? What type of education do you need for your dream job? What obstacles may stand in your way? What type of support do you already have—or do you need—to make that dream job a reality?
Basic requirements? Basic requirements? (1) 25 years of age (or younger), (2) a current or former high school student who will attend/is attending college within the U.S. or its territories, and (3) a submitted original poem with the poetry slam tag One Job May Change My Life on PowerPoetry.org.
