Plumbing and HVAC as a Career
PlumbersStock.com is pleased to offer a unique scholarship opportunity for those studying at colleges and trade schools to become plumbers, HVAC technicians or sprinkler and irrigation specialists (or other related fields, like construction management). We understand the importance of education, and as proud members of the community, we like to give back. In an effort to help students achieve their dreams, we are offering scholarships to three winners who will share a total of $3,000.
Who Is Eligible to Participate in the PlumbersStock Student Scholarship Contest?
For eligibility, you must be enrolled at a participating school for higher learning (if your school is not participating, please urge them to and contact us about it). The program is designed with the intent that all participants can improve their job placement prospects. To apply for the scholarship, please follow these steps:
- Create a "how-to-guide" video for home improvement novices demonstrating your skill in plumbing, HVAC, or irrigation. Examples: "How to Replace a Toilet", "How to Fix a Leaky Faucet", "How to Diagnose Water Heater Issues", etc. It can be about whatever relevant and helpful topic you can think of.
- Follow the guidelines below to publish your video.
- Complete the submission form so that we are notified of your participation.
The student with the best video will receive $2,000 to complete their education.
The two runners-up will both receive $500 in scholarship money.
25 students will receive "honorable mention" which will be documented on our blog. They can list this honor on their resume. The most important aspect of your education is that it provides the means for you to earn a living. With a quality video that you can show to prospective employers, you are sure to improve your employment potential. We designed our scholarship contest with this intent so that all participants can "win", in a sense.
To Officially Submit:
- Create your video: Please edit the videos so that they are no longer than 10 minutes. There is no minimum requirement, but just remember the more informative the better. Please have an introduction at the beginning of the video where you state (1) the topic, (2) your first name, and (3) that it is a student project. Your video will be graded primarily on the information presented and how useful it is to viewers. Secondarily, it will be graded on creativity and production quality.
- Publish your video: Post your completed how-to-guide to a free video hosting site (like YouTube or Vimeo).
- Endorse your video: When you publish the video, in the description please state: (1) what your video is about, (2) what school you go to, (3) explain that it is for the PlumbersStock.com Student Scholarship Contest, and (4) leave a link to our website: http://www.PlumbersStock.com (You can link to whatever relevant page you want. For instance, if your video is about installing an elongated toilet, you could link to our home page, the toilet page, or to be even more specific, you could link it to the elongated toilet page.)

Terms & Conditions
Eligibility - This opportunity is available to any high school seniors who will be soon enrolling at a participating school, as well as any students who are currently enrolled (including part-timers). Only those going to schools within the United States are eligible. To qualify for the PlumbersStock Student Scholarship Contest you must meet all these requirements.
Deadline - Submissions must be received by March 31, 2014 to qualify. If submitted after March 31st, they will be considered for the next scholarship opportunity. There are no citizenship requirements.
Selecting a Winner - All entries will be evaluated by our chosen panel of judges. They will be judged by the information presented, creativity, and overall quality (though production quality is the least important factor). Check back on this page for the announcement of the winners on April 30, 2014. Once we can verify eligibility, the winners will receive e-mail notification prior to the public announcement.
