The contest prizes are as follows:

Five finalists will be chosen and those finalists will all be flown to New York city or Los Angeles along with a friend. The model contest finalists will get a 4 day stay at a hotel in the city and will participate in a photoshoot and a media event.

A winner will be chosen from the finalists and the model who wins will get a $10,000 scholarship and the chance to appear on a future cover of Seventeen Magazine.

The entries are already being taken online. The contest opened this month and the deadline to apply is April 30th 2013. When you enter, please be prepared. You must submit 2 very recent photos of yourself that are not edited and very clear.

The modeling contest also expects the entrants to be well spoken with good writing skills. Along with the photos and the application, potential models will have to submit an essay which will tell the judges why she is “pretty amazing”.
