Lawn Butler—an award-winning, Utah-based company specializing in lawn care and landscape management, is excited to announce the launch of the Lawn Butler National Essay/Video Scholarship Award.
Also, feel free to see a video from a previous winner.
At Lawn Butler, we believe landscape management should be hassle-free-and so should pursuing a college degree. Our hope is that the Lawn Butler Scholarship will inspire current and future students to seek college degrees and finish their educations.
Who is Eligible?
Any current, full-time student at an accredited two-year or four-year American university or college is welcome to apply. There is no age or specified major requirement.
Applicants must answer one of the following questions, depending on the semester.
What is perception about the landscaping industry that you have discovered to be a myth? How do you think myths like this could be overcome for landscape companies like Lawn Butler to be able to provide quality service?
Prepare: Write an essay explaining an industry myth and how we can overcome it; the essay should be 500 words or less.
Why is landscaping important to communities?
Prepare: Create a one-minute video that shares why you think landscaping is important to communities. The video should be posted on YouTube, Vimeo, or a similar video platform.

Fall semester applicants must submit their entries by August 15th, and a winner will be named by September 5th.
