It’s all in your hands – or words, rather.

Helping businesses across various industries scrutinize which software is ideal for meeting their goals, we at Wheelhouse understand what it means to strive for nothing short of the very best.

Likewise, we want to see our generation of today aim high and shoot for the stars! We know you are aspiring for a bright career, and quality education is an important stepping stone towards building the future you dream of.

For the second time, Wheelhouse gives you the chance to win a $1000 scholarship to fund your education! All you have to do is select one of the below topics and write an essay, for your chance to win!


To have the chance to win a $1,000 Wheelhouse Scholarship, write an original 700- to 1,000 word essay based on one of the topics below:

Topic One

We live in an era where software impacts so much of our lives. Businesses, no matter which industry they focus on, arguably have the most to gain based on their technology decisions.

In your opinion, what single software category has made the most significant impact on the business world?

Topic Two

Searching for the right business software solution is much like searching for the right college—you have to weigh your needs against vast program offerings and determine which school will best lead to your success. Online comparison tools can help you choose the right college, just like Wheelhouse helps businesses select the right software.

Describe how you compared colleges and what tools helped you make your final decision. What ultimately helped you make your choice?
