One Student Could Win A $US50,000 College Scholarship From Rapper Juicy J For Twerking

With college costs steadily on the rise, one rapper is doing his part to help alleviate the financial burden on students.

Oscar-winning rapper Juicy J will give one lucky student a $50,000 college scholarship through a now-closed contest. The requirement was simple — film a YouTube video twerking to his new single “Scholarship.”

“Twerk” is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “to dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” The dance is currently having a moment in the spotlight — more than 350 people recently set a world record for simultaneous twerking and Miley Cyrus twerking costumes are currently the hot Halloween outfit after her performance at the VMAs.

No winner has been announced yet for the $US50,000 scholarship, but you can watch the videos in contention here.
