All you hard-working college students and burgeoning C.E.O.'s out there, this contest will be sure to grab your attention.
PLNDR—Karmaloop’s members-only fashion site—is offering $10,000 toward tuition or business start-up money with their latest contest.
To acquire votes, you must become a member of PLNDR's invite-only online retail store (if you aren't already), invite friends to join the site, and share the contest via social networking sites. Each vote counts as an entry, and the grand-prize winner will be chosen at random. A second-place prize of $1,000 will also be awarded. Each entrant will have a unique leaderboard tracking their progress and votes on the road to the $10,000.
We spoke with PLNDR founder Leandrew Robinson regarding the contest, where he stated, "Personally, I have a soft spot in my heart for education. That was the professional endeavor I was into before PLNDR. I used to build mentoring and college prep programs for low-income students in California. The role that education plays is more towards giving someone liberty."
"The contest is actually a little more broader [than your average college giveaway]," Robinson says of the contest. He continues by adding, "In the brainstorming stages, we opened it up to people who aren't in college, but looking to start up a business. We really want to give out this helping hand that allows people to succeed generally and have choices in life."
