L’Oréal USA Launches Scholarship Sweepstakes

Los Angeles, California (NAPSI) - This summer, your passion for science, technology,  engineering or math (STEM) can be even more rewarding.

L’Oréal USA  For Girls In Science, an initiative dedicated to inspiring and empowering girls  to pursue careers in STEM, has launched the “Connected Through  STEM” sweepstakes on  This sweepstakes invites people of all ages across the country to pledge  their support for STEM by letting their imagination loose by creatively  putting their friends, family, pets or themselves in a photo with the  L’Oréal double helix. This simple act will show their connection  and commitment to STEM. The grand prize includes a scholarship, laptop and  L’Oréal USA  beauty products.

Here’s how it works: Whether it be at home, at work, on vacation or  even in a supermarket—from elevators and price scanners to the sand and  the sea—we’re surrounded by innovations and marvels from STEM.  All you need to do is capture photos of these moments and put the  L’Oréal double helix in the shot to show your connection to  STEM. A map of America,  dubbed the Helix Heat Map, will capture the number of entries in each state  and will highlight participation from coast to coast. Participants can upload  new photos every day on  

The entry period for photo submissions is from July 1, 2013 through  September 23, 2013. Ten Visa gift cards, each worth $75, will be awarded  weekly. The grand-prize winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship, which the  recipient can gift, a 16GB laptop and $250 (retail value) worth of  L’Oréal USA beauty products. Winners will be selected at random.  For more information about the L’Oréal USA For Girls In Science   “Connected Through STEM” sweepstakes and for official rules and a  submission form, go to
