Manning & Zimmerman 7th Amendment Scholarships entries are only open to entrants who are currently enrolled in high school and plan to pursue any type of post-secondary education. Prior video scholarship winners are not eligible, although previous entrants who did not receive a scholarship may participate again with new submissions. Void where restricted or prohibited by law. According to the official scholarship rules, anyone who is affiliated with the Sponsor as an employee, contract or regular, and their respective family members, is not eligible to enter.
Entrants will record a video between two and three minutes in length discussing why the 7th amendment matters to the United States Constitution and our system of justice, and then publish that video to their personal YouTube channel. Next, entrants will title the video ”Manning & Zimmerman 7th Amendment Scholarships Entry” and include a link to https://www.manningzimmermanlaw.com in the video’s description. Finally, entrants will share their video to both Manning & Zimmerman’s Facebook page and their own Facebook page, and are encouraged to post on their own Twitter account and other social media pages. Those who do not have a YouTube and/or Facebook account may submit a written essay.
If the entrant is under the age of 18, the Sponsor must receive permission from a parent or legal guardian before the entrant may submit a video entry. If the entrant who is under the age of 18 wishes to submit a video entry, he or she must have their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) write a release form (including the entrant’s name, as well as the parent or legal guardian’s name, address, date, and signature) to be delivered by mail or electronically to the Sponsor in order to be eligible.
All video and written submissions must be the original work of the entrant and never before posted elsewhere.

The entrant is responsible for securing all the applicable authorizations necessary to record, submit, and publish the video.
If the Sponsor considers a video submission to not adhere to the Official Scholarship Rules, then that video will not be eligible for a scholarship. However, if Sponsor regards a video submission as compliant, then that video will be qualified to participate in the scholarship program.
