The Smart Monkey Fitness


Scholarship Contest 


 $1,000 Scholarship Contest for College Students

We at Smart Monkey Fitness believe that fitness extends far beyond what you can find in a gym or out on a run.  Fitness is a mental game as much as a physical one; after all, we’re Smart Monkeys for a reason! 

College education has never been more available than it is today, but unfortunately, it’s also far more expensive than ever before. That’s where this contest comes in! Staying true to our name, we want to support those that are seeking an education and also demonstrate an interest in health and fitness. We want to help put a dent in your expenses this school year and give you a shot at getting your work published on our site, which sees over 60,000 visits a month.

For details on eligibility and how to submit a contest entry, scroll down the page.
