Forty percent of seniors don’t use the Internet. That can leave many feeling depressed or isolated from loved ones. So, teach an older adult the basics -- and wonders! -- of technology!

Teach tech to an older adult, send a pic of the two of you in action, and you'll enter to win a $10,000 scholarship.

AND, for each senior you teach, you earn another entry to win. So teach one senior and send a photo = one chance to win. Teach 12 seniors and send 12 photos = 12 chances to win. (And so on!)
