“Better Than a Loan” 2019 Scholarship Topic:
Scenario: You are the manager of a department and need to lay off an employee. You must choose between two team members. Person A is a thought leader at the company, generating successful ideas that have helped propel the company financially. However, Person A is not well-liked among their peers, thanks to an obtuse personality and a strong disdain for other people. Person B is very popular at the company, consistently helping motivate the team thanks to a compassionate connection with each team member and an infectiously upbeat personality. However, all of Person B's ideas end up being unprofitable. Who would you fire? Why?

We ask that you pitch it to us two ways. First, log in to your Twitter account (if you have one) and Tweet @LendzaLoans with a condensed version of your idea along with the #BetterThanALoan hashtag. Then, submit a 500-word version using the uploader below. Whether you can Tweet your idea or not, you must include a 140-character version of your idea at the top of your essay.
