BigRentz Awards $10,000 in Scholarships to Engineering and Film Students


Students Attending Texas A&M and New York University Recognized for
their Visions in their Respective Disciplines

BigRentz, the nation's largest equipment rental network, announced the
winners of its inaugural scholarship program for students pursuing
higher education in engineering and film studies. Lauren Brabson, a
senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M, and Joshua
Leong, a freshman majoring in Film Production at New York University,
Tisch School of Arts, were each awarded a $5,000 scholarship to offset
educational expenses.

"Investing in students is a core value at BigRentz – especially those
learning to apply renewable energy to engineering processes and helping
to visually tell how people, ideas, and technology come together,"
stated Scott Cannon, Chief Executive Officer at BigRentz.

Cannon continued, "Lauren's essay demonstrated critical knowledge of the
fact that modern engineering disciplines have a long road ahead of
themselves in the matter of adapting to new technological processes, as
well as the challenges posed by the need for renewable energy.
Furthermore, Joshua's essay was extremely detailed and exhibited a
thorough understanding of cinematography. His submission was one of few
that truly made the reader experience all cinematic elements of his
chosen film, Whiplash."

BigRentz received over 350 essays and selected the winning essays based
on their understanding and vision for their fields.

In addition to providing heavy equipment rentals nationwide, BigRentz
also offers educational and informative content relating to
construction, engineering, safety and the application of emerging
