The Flood Preparation Scholarship - win $500 for your education while helping people prepare for floods

With disastrous flooding in Texas and Oklahoma, a strong possibility that an El Niño event could hit California this winter, and predictions that say national flood risk could increase 45% by 2100, now is the time to make sure you’re prepared for a flood.

To help educate businesses, homeowners, and people throughout the country prepare for a flood, TSC Restoration is proud to offer the Flood Preparation Scholarship.

To enter, just submit an original 1-5 minute YouTube video where you show one, or several ways, to prepare for a flood. Make sure you link to or mention TSC Restoration in the description to prove that the video was created for our scholarship contest. The winning entry will receive $500 towards their education, while doing a small part to help keep people safe from flood damage.
