High School Laptop Scholarship Contest

Metropolitan Transit System

The annual Laptop Scholarship Essay Contest awarded 40 San Diego County High School students (grades 9 - 12) with best scored essays on this year's prompt with a new laptop. A ceremony to commemorate their achievements took place on January 26. 

Essay Prompt:

The San Diego County of Governments (SANDAG), the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) and North County Transit District (NCTD) launched a temporary pilot program offering free transit access to youth 18 and under.

For the 2022 Laptop Scholarship Essay Contest, sponsored by Reyes Coca-Cola, students wrote a persuasive essay on the value of the pilot program, and why it should or should not continue.

Congratulations to all the winners!
