RICK SCOTT JOSH COOPER & FLORIDA ICE
Rick Scott J. Cooper & Florida Ice offered a $1,000 scholarship to the student who uploaded the best lip-sync video. This scholarship idea was inspired by Cooper’s favorite show, Lip Sync Battle, starring LL Cool J and model Chrissy Teigen.
The purpose of the scholarship was to protest Florida Senate Bill 86 which required college students to select a major leading directly to employment. The measure would have prioritized student academic majors and career paths and give politicians too much power over what students choose to study.
This scholarship was offered on May 10, 2021. Growing opposition to the passage of this bill has been noticed by state legislators. A petition was signed by more than 70,000 students in opposition to the bill. After months of controversy, a bill proposing changes to Bright Futures funding was finally terminated when it stalled in the Florida House of Representatives. The Florida Legislature’s 60-day session ended April 30, 2021, and Senate Bill 86 alongside it.
U CAN'T TOUCH THIS
"U Can't Touch This" is a song co-written, produced, and performed by MC Hammer from his 1990 album Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em. It is considered to be his signature song.
