$50,000 scholarship up for grabs with Planters Trick Shot Challenge, deadline April 12

Planters, the well-known peanut company, is hosting a basketball-focused scholarship competition, and the winner will be awarded a $50,000 scholarship.

“If you’ve got the moves, we want to see’em,” the company posted on its social media.

Those who enter the contest will perform a trick shot, captured on video and post it to TikTok, Twitter or even Instagram with the hashtags #PlantersTrickShot and #Contest. 

Planters’ panel of judges will judge contestants through each appropriateness to theme, creativity/originality, and difficulty of trick shot/shock value.

So judges are able to review the videos, social media accounts will need to be made public.

The company’s Trick Shot Challenge was announced shortly before 2021’s NCAA March Madness tournament.

“To enter post your own Planters Trick Shot video using #PlantersTrickShot #Contest and visit planterstrickshot.com for official rules.”
