College-Bound Students to Win Laptops in MTS Essay Contest

The Metropolitan Transportation System's annual essay contest about using mobile devices to make public transportation easier will give away laptops and iPads - enter soon!

A 1,000-word essay on using high-tech mobile devices to make public transportation easier to use could be worth a new laptop computer for college-bound high school seniors participating in the Metropolitan Transportation System's 10th annual essay contest announced last week.

Forty laptop computers will be awarded for the essays judged to be the best, according to the MTS. The application deadline is April 13, but entries sent in by March 16 will be eligible to win an iPad 2.

The organizers of the MTS Coca-Cola Laptop Scholarship specifically mentioned the Go! system that enables smart phone users to find out when the next bus or trolley will arrive.

Application forms are available online at sdmts.com and at The Transit Store at Broadway and First Avenue downtown.

MTS said the application deadline is Friday, April 13, but students who submit their application and essay by March 16 could win an iPad 2.
