WSU Students Throws for $100,000, Wins $7,500
A Washington State University student competing for a $100,000 scholarship from Dr. Pepper scored 3rd place this weekend and a $7,500 scholarship.
18-year-old Megan Hardy, a graduate of Southridge High School, was one of five finalists who traveled to Florida this weekend to compete in throwing the most footballs at a target in 30 seconds to win a scholarship.
Last fall, Hardy submitted a video to a Dr. Pepper contest for a chance to compete during the BCS National Championship Game.
The competition will air during the pre-game show tomorrow night on ESPN.
Megan says the money will help her pursue her dream of becoming a teacher.
