Illinois teen Max Zinzilieta is one student heading off to college who will not have to worry about student loans. Thanks to Michelin and its #PennyForAFreeRide Scholarship sweepstakes, Zinzilieta starts off his college experience with a $100,000 scholarship simply for using a penny to check the tread depth of his tires. 

Michelin’s #PennyForAFreeRide scholarship sweepstakes was developed to help young drivers pursue their dreams and remind them to practice safe driving habits. Teen drivers had the chance to win a free ride to college — just by checking their car’s tire pressure or tread depth and sharing it on social media. Zinzilieta, from Mt. Vernon, Illinois, was randomly selected for the scholarship out of thousands of entrants throughout the U.S.
