We're rewarding the Best Role Model with a $1,000 scholarship

Are you the Best Role Model?

Aerie wants to recognize a person who makes everyone feel their best—themselves included. That's why we're giving a $1,000 scholarship to a passionate, driven, and authentic student.

Someone who’s beautiful on the inside and out. Someone who inspires and embodies what it means to be a Role Model. Someone who keeps it #AerieREAL.

How do I win?

You have two easy options! Either send us a short essay (max 500 words!) OR create a short video (max 2 mins!) telling us why you (OR A FRIEND!) are the best Role Model.

Don't forget to show us on social using #AerieUNiDAYS. Though not required, preference may be given to students who post on social media.

If you create a video, share it on social media for bonus points! Post your friend or yourself on either Youtube or Instagram using the #AerieUNiDAYS and explain why you or they are the best role model. Be creative!

Make sure your post is public so we can see it! Then please provide the link to either your post on Instagram or your video on Youtube. Test your link to make sure it works!

Where do I apply?

Right here!

Anything else I need to know?

Our friends at Going Merry will make sure your application in good hands! The terms and conditions can be found here.

Remember that you don't have to be perfect to be a role model, you just have to try your best and be true to yourself!

We're not looking for an actual real-life Leslie Knope, we're just looking for someone who leads by example and strives to be a person they'd want to look up to.

What's a difficult situation you've handled well? What kinds of things are you involved in to better the world around you? In what ways are you a leader? What qualities do you look for in a role model, and how do you embody those qualities?

A role model can mean many things, so show us your unique interpretation!

We can't wait to make you our new idol 😍
