The dog ate my homework.
My computer hard drive fried.
I was preparing for Hurricane Sandy.
Only one of these statements is a legitimate reason for not submitting your application on time for the 2013 GPN/Nexus Intern of the Year scholarship.
Because of Hurricane Sandy, we have extended the deadline for submissions until this 5 p.m. CDT on Wednesday (10/31).
Even if you weren't impacted by Sandy, you can still take advantage of this two-day extension and get your submission in on Halloween—but this is the absolute final deadline!
So before you go out trick or treating, be sure to send in your application. Click here  for all details on how to apply for the scholarship.
For all of you in the path of Sandy, please be safe. Once she has passed through, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org  and let me know how you rode out the storm.
