At Insurox, we know buying car insurance can be very painful. We also know that students suffer from higher-than-average policy rates. That’s why, this year, we’ve decided to start Insurox annual scholarship with the goal of helping to alleviate the financial pressures of college students in the United States.
So, students, we want to see your favorite road trip destination(s) in your state— from your unique perspective. If it makes sense to hit the open road and be our virtual tour guide, that’s great! But there are no limits to what we’re looking for: a narrated animation, a slide-show of memorabilia, an illustrated map of the best roadside attractions on the way. This is a chance for you to showcase any place you love in as an original way as possible.
•This is not a traditional video essay. We do not want an extended selfie of your face (as lovely as it is) speaking to the camera. Make sure your video includes creative visual elements.
•The length of the road trip to your feature destination is inconsequential. And if you have an awesome spot in mind that’s just two miles from home, we want to see it.
