Your Best Fortune Cookie Fortune Could Win You a Scholarship From Pei Wei

Carmen Mandato/ The Penny Hoarder

The fortune you seek is inside of you.

Pei Wei, in partnership with Dr Pepper, is holding a “Creators of Fortune” contest where your sayings can end up as a fortune-cookie fortune.

That’s right. All those witty comments and comebacks you come up with on social media could literally pay off.

Who knew that so much could depend on a 2 ¼ inch by ⅙ inch piece of paper?

Who Can Write Fortunes and Win?

Anyone 18 and older and a legal resident of the U.S. can enter.

However, only students actively enrolled at an accredited university in the U.S and taking at least six credit hours will be eligible for the grand prize and first prize scholarships.

All entrants must have a Facebook or Twitter account to enter the contest.

What Does Your Fortune Hold?

Emotions are sweet and sour, and so are the prizes in this contest.

There’s only one grand prize winner, and that person will receive a tuition check for $1,000.

Four first-place prizes will receive a tuition check for $500.

The 125 second-place prize winners will receive a $5 Pei Wei gift card, and 220 third-place prizes will receive a digital coupon for a free beverage at participating Pei Wei locations.

How to Enter the Pei Wei “Creators of Fortune” Contest
