Know geography? Then, earn a AAA scholarship
High school students in Maryland - and nationwide - who can answer questions such as, "If you are driving west from Dodge City, which state will you first come to?" can earn a chance for a $25,000 college scholarship in the fourth annual AAA Travel High School Challenge.
The contest aims to increase teens' travel knowledge and geographic literacy, while creating awareness of career opportunities in the travel and tourism industry. It is open to all U.S. students in grades 9-12, public, private or home-schooled. Students can sign up any time between now and Jan. 17 at www.aaa.com/TravelChallenge.
