How to ace the Montem Health and Wellness Scholarship


Be creative

Montem Outdoor Gear is looking for unique and creative content that will convince readers that you appreciate a healthy lifestyle. Have fun, be creative, and let your personality and passion come through.


Give great tips

While a creative approach is key it needs to be backed by substance. Be honest about your approach to staying healthy and think deeply about how your actions have contributed to your lifestyle. Where you can, provide concrete suggestions that others can replicate on their own fitness journeys.


Keep it simple and make a plan

Choosing what to write about is usually the biggest hurdle. Touching on too many different topics can dilute the impact of your submission and while it may seem like a lot, 1,000 words can fly by if you don't have a plan in place. Take some time before you write to decide exactly what you want to say and have a second person edit your entry critically before submitting.


Use the time you have

There are two submission dates in the year, which means you have plenty of time to complete your essay. Use this time to craft a well-written piece of writing.

How the Montem Health and Wellness Scholarship is Judged

Essays will be judged on how creative they were, the value of the information provided, and other criteria not disclosed by the judging panel. So ensure that you have an error-free essay.
