It can be a little embarrassing to admit to people that your parents met through an online dating website; after all, despite that fact that a large portion of people date on the web nowadays, it's still considered sort of taboo. But what if your parents meeting online could actually be a perk? The kind of perk that could win you $50,000 in scholarship money?
It turns out Match.com is doing just that. The site just launched the MatchMade Scholarship Contest, which is dedicated to over one million babies that have been "made" by Match (indirectly, of course. Your parents did most of the work...yikes). Yes, you heard us right: Your parents meeting on the Internet (and doing the dirty deed sometime afterwards) can win you an entire year of college tuition. All you have to do is enter the contest by submitting a video in which you recount your parents' Match story, everything from their first messages to their first date to their happily-ever-after ending. Any Match baby between the ages of 13 and 20 is eligible to enter.
So, what do you think, collegiettes? Is this scholarship contest cute or a little... weird? (After all, we don't know anyone who likes thinking about their parents doin' it!) Share your thoughts in the comments!
