What are you up to this Thanksgiving weekend? is a fashion search engine that launched in July.

In a twist, the fashion school scholarship application only requires 140 characters. Well, even fewer than that, as entrants must also include a multitude of hash tags. Entrants must also "like" the Fidoo Facebook Page to be eligible and follow @fashion_engine) to consider their application complete.

For those who need few more characters, applicants may tweet a link to a 60 second video, tumblr article, or blog post showcasing why they are the most deserving applicant.

Then, it's time to get friends and family to share the post. Judging criteria includes the number of times the application is tweeted, originality, creativity and "ability to show a unique passion in pursuing an education in fashion."

Deadline  is December 15.  Recipient will be announced on November 1st.

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
