Last summer, rapper Juicy J announced that he would be giving away $50,000 in scholarship money. He initially tweeted, “I’m giving out a 50k scholarship to the best chick that can twerk.”

The tweet received an overwhelming amount of responses, and applications for the scholarship. After going through submissions, Juicy J has selected Zaire Holmes as the recipient of the award.

The rapper insist that no twerking was required to win. 

From The Urban Daily:

“50K is a lot of money and I don’t want to waste it on some chick twerkin’ her ass,” he says. “Next time I send a Tweet out about a scholarship take it serious and read the words!”

The winner is 19-year-old Zaire Holmes, a mother and student at the State College of Florida who did read the rules and submitted this video explaining why she deserved the money.
