Announcing the Free Community College Story Competition Winners

Drumroll please

We’re thrilled to announce that Dilia Samadova is the winner of our Free Community College Story competition. Her story inspired us deeply! Dilia will receive $2,000, which covers an average semester’s tuition at community college.

And our runners-up are:

  • Second Place: Johnson Tran

  • Third Place: Mary Pacio

  • Fourth Place: Gulish Javadova

Johnson, Mary, and Gulish will receive $500, $250, and $100 respectively.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this competition. We learned so much from hearing your stories, and know many others did as well. Free community college is an investment in our nation and in hardworking people like you!

If you have a free community college story to tell, we still want to hear from you! Please share your story with us here. The growing momentum for free community college would not be possible without voices like yours!

Also, we will launch our fall video competition in a few months, and your entries will be due on October 1st. So stay tuned by following @HeadsUpAmerica on Instagram!
