MVTHS Senior Wins $100k Scholarship in Nationwide Contest

MT. VERNON — A Mt. Vernon Township High School senior has won a $100,000 scholarship to the school of his choice after being named the winner of a national scholarship contest. Max Zinzilieta has won the Michelin #PennyForAFreeRide scholarship sweepstakes, a contest developed to help young drivers pursue their dreams while also reminding them to practice safe driving habits.

Zinzilieta says all he had to do to enter was check his tire tread.

Zinzilieta will be heading to SIU-Edwardsville in the fall to study computer science and linguistics. For more information on the scholarship or tire safety, you can visit their website here.
