Casey Dilworth Scholarship

As per a study done by the Faculty of University of Michigan in the year 2014, 50% college students report daytime sleepiness and 70% college students report insufficient sleep. As per a study by the Faculty of University of California in the year 2004, 30% college students' snore, this adds to the daytime sleepiness. Sleep is becoming more and more elusive amongst college students. Shorter duration of sleep is linked to increased chances of snoring. Snoring amongst college students is one of the earliest indicators of adult sleep-breathing disorders, which can cause serious health repercussions in future. My name is Katherine Dilworth. I am founder of Caseydilworth.com On this site we talk about snoring, its affects, and ways to control and combat it. Me and my team at Caseydilworth.com have launched a novel scholarship to help combat sleep deprivation amongst college students. We are inviting video submissions from college students explaining what techniques they use to attain restful sleep. These submissions will be reviewed by a panel of sleep experts, and the most restful sleep idea will be awarded a $500 scholarship.
