Students looking for financial aid have the chance to win up to $100,000 from the Dr Pepper Million Dollar Tuition Giveaway, an annual contest by the soft drink brand that offers aspiring students various prizes and scholarships.

The Dr Pepper Million Dollar Tuition Giveaway asks Dr Pepper drinkers between the ages of 18 and 24 to pleat their case (why they should get the tution money) via online video submissions. Dr Pepper will pick ten winners to compete against each other by throwing footballs into a Dr Pepper replica from the 5-yard line at four conference championship games (during the halftime shows).

According to Popsop, the fan who completes the most throws in 30 seconds will win a $100,000 scholarship. Those in second place get $23,000 scholarships. Other video submissions will also receive instant $2,500 scholarships.
