Juicy J Twerk Scholarship: Reading is Fundamental

Last August, Juicy J, the Memphis rapper from Three 6 Mafia was awarding a scholarship but the name caused controversy. 

The "Twerk Scholarship" awarded a college student with a $50,000 check. The title alone would make students look elsewhere if they were not interested in twerking for tuition. Some may be desperate and upload a twerk video in hopes of winning the money. Others may look to the rules and dismiss the title. If you look on the website and read the rules submissions are for students (up to 25 years old) in school for the year 2014/2015 and they must be a resident of one of the 50 states. Juicy J uploaded a video on WorldStarHipHop.com explaining the rules. He told applicants to submit a video no longer than five minutes explaining why they deserved the scholarship. 

But most video submissions on Juicy J's website included twerking videos. So where did the twerking video submissions come from if applicants were not advised to twerk? 
Today Juicy J has picked the winner for the "Twerk Scholarship" but did she have to twerk? No, she did not the Florida biology student decided to read the rules. Juicy J posted a video of the winner,  19-year-old, Zaire Holmes. She will use this scholarship for the cost of her labs and medical school.  Look at her video submission.
