Online Phone Book Publisher offers $1,500 College scholarship annually to graduating high school seniors whose career path is related to environmental science.
EAST NORTHPORT, NEW YORK, USA, September 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yellow Pages Directory Inc., a telephone directory which supports the “Green” movement with its YellowPagesGoesGreen.org, is offering a $1,500 College scholarship to a distinguished graduating high school senior whose career path is slated to take them into any fields related to environmental preservation and environmental sciences. The goal of this scholarship is to encourage youth to pursue careers which impact Earth.
An innovator in digital telephone directory services delivers over 28.5 million Yellow Page listings and over 200 million White page listings throughout the United States. In addition, YPGG’s “Paperless Petition” was a pioneer in the phone book “opt-out” movement which helped abolish obsolete print telephone directories by prompting awareness in both creating an official opt-out process and continues to push for a national ‘opt-in’ model for printed phone books.
Those applying for the scholarship must adhere to the following strict set of criteria in order to be considered:
• Be sixteen (16) years of age or older at the time of application.
• Planning to pursue a degree directly related to environmental science or preservation.
• Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia.
• Be enrolled (no later than fall of 2021) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education.
• Postal mail their written essay (scholarship Application) no later than May 31, 2019 at 11:59 pm
“The environment has sustained countless years of abuse at the hands of corporations and the only way to combat the damage is through supporting the next wave of environmental engineers, scientists, and preservationists, and that’s why we have instituted this scholarship contest. I invite any dedicated young students to get involved and submit their essay application.” said Yellow Pages Directory Inc. CEO Michael Keegan.
Yellow Pages Directory Inc., owner of both YellowPagesGoesGreen.org and PaperlessPetition.org, offers an environmentally-friendly Web-based alternative to paper telephone directories while providing a simple and convenient mechanism for customers to opt out from the receipt of printed yellow books. Both web sites have been instrumental in promoting opt-out awareness across the United States over the past several years, and allowing users to reduce their own environmental footprints in the process. Yellow Pages Directory Inc. has also taken steps to reduce its own impact on the environment through the use of the most up-to-date and energy-efficient web-hosting services available.
