Michigan First Credit Union is offering high school and college students more than $50,000 in scholarships.

They're soliciting students to submit a 60-second video or a 300-word essay responding to the question, "What would you do with $50,000?"

The top three entries in three categories will receive $10,000, $5,000 and $3,000 scholarships. Additional $1,000 scholarships will be given to other qualifying entries.

The deadline is Feb. 12.

Interested students can visit youngfreemichigan.com for more information.
