I admit that I have pretty much lost track of time. I had to consult the calendar. Here in Illinois, we are on week 6 or our stay at home order. This means that my husband and I have been working from home. And my 4 kids have been out of school. They started remote learning on Monday, April 13. It has definitely taken some getting used to for us all. Brainly recognizes that this is a trying time for parents and students, and they want students to share their stories. You may just win the Brainly Power of Parents Scholarship.

Listen… we cannot all be super parents! For some parents adjusting to working from home, cooking. taking care of the home and connecting with kids can be stressful enough. Add to that helping with remote learning and you have a recipe for burnout! We may think that our kids take us for granted, but they don’t. This gives them a chance to express what they may not always say and win $2500 for college while doing so.
What is Brainly?
Brainly is an online knowledge-sharing community. Currently comprised of over 150 million students and experts sharing their knowledge and putting their heads together to crack the toughest homework questions. The platform has over 2,000 moderators that keep things moving. Members are comprised of people from over 35 countries. Over 50 million questions have been answered so far. While this is a great resource at any time, this is even more important now with so many working and learning from home and needing to connect with others and reach out for help.
Is Brainly Free?
Brainly does have a free option that allows you to ask and read some questions and answers. However, if you wish to access all of the content, you can purchase a Brainly Plus subscription. An annual subscription is only $24, billed yearly. This is a bargain at only $2/month.
Apply for the Brainly Power of Parents Scholarship
Whether you are a Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, or Senior at some point during your high school life, you may need the help of your parents. This could be help with Trigonometry (and if you are a parent who can help with that I commend you!) Or this could be something as simple as helping with school forms. Parents want their kids to succeed. And parental help can make a huge difference.
Brainly would like to know how your parents are helping to support your remote learning. Did mom sacrifice her laptop for you? Did they pay to upgrade the Internet speed so you maintain a great connection while in class? Is Dad a math whiz and helping you with homework or quiz preparations? Is mom a computer whiz and on hand to help you with new programs or apps to get your learning done? Are they helping you with homework after putting in a full day? What are some of the things your parent/guardian has done to help your learning success?
Apply by writing a short 300-400 word essay outlining your experience.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be at least 14 years of age and no older than 21 years of age
- Legally reside in the U.S. at the time of application
- Be a current high school student
- Intend to be enrolled as a full-time student or take online classes at an accredited undergraduate U.S. college or university within the next 4 years
- Have home-learning experience
College expenses can add up. Between tuition, books, room and board, and food, it can be a lot. Every little bit helps! I highly recommend encouraging your teens to apply. This could be something else that you work on together. 🙂
