Dry Defender’s mission is to protect America’s mattresses from spills, accidents, dust mites, bed bugs, mildew and mold, and other allergens. But like all good superheroes, Dry Defender needs an arch-nemesis. That’s where you come in.

If you wish to apply for the 2015 Dry Defender $1,000 Protect Your Bed Scholarship, your mission is to—

1. Come up with an arch-nemesis for Dry Defender. 2.	Make some type of creative piece (comic, short film, drawing, etc.) of Dry Defender and his nemesis facing off.

Selection Process

All entries will be reviewed and graded by a panel of 10 judges from the Protective Bedding Store. The winner will be chosen based on how good his or her concept for Dry Defender’s nemesis is, and the creativity and effort put into the creative piece submitted.

The winning creative piece will be featured right here on this site on July 31. The $1,000 award will be sent directly to the winner’s school to be used toward their tuition.
