Puzzles make the world better. They entertain us, they challenge us, they make us think, rewiring our brains to look for solutions in innovative, creative ways. Over the years, we’ve chronicled how puzzles have launched people on quests, brought couples together, and raised money for worthy causes.
And now, a puzzle could lead to a scholarship for one enterprising applicant out there.
The crew at Mission Street Puzzles — a delightful outfit that specializes in puzzle hunt-style brain teasers that all lead to different San Francisco locations — are offering financial aid to a promising young puzzler.
From the announcement page:
We’re excited to announce that Mission Street Puzzles will be hosting a scholarship for student puzzle-writers! The winner of this scholarship will receive $2000 toward higher education.
How do you apply? Well, you fill out the form and compose a puzzle (and walkthrough solution) that leads to a landmark as the final answer.
Applicants have until Monday, May 18th, 2020 to enter, so be sure to share this info with students you know! The scholarship is open to students who are or will be (in the upcoming school year) attending higher education in the U.S. or Canada.
This is such a cool opportunity for a puzzle-minded student out there to earn some cash to help with school expenses. Kudos to the folks at Mission Street Puzzles for creating this marvelous program, and good luck to any applicants in the PuzzleNation readership!
