Last year KFC added a new twist to their KFC Colonel's Scholars® scholarship program (deadline Feburary 8) by providing a scholarship to the best tweet. This year, they are doing something a little different.  They’re giving a high school senior a $20,000 scholarship based on a single photograph

KFC is asking college hopefuls to tweet a photo that illustrates why they exemplify Colonel Sanders' commitment to education and enriching their communities, and why they are deserving of a college scholarship.

To win you need to tweet a single image and including the hashtag #KFCScholar.
The winner will be announced on December 15 and will receive up to $5,000 per year for the next four years to pursue a degree at an accredited public university within your home state.
