10 Touching Stories of MatchMade Babies and the Match Scholarship Winner Revealed

Since its humble beginnings in 1995, the dating website Match has helped launch millions of first dates, relationships, marriages and ...babies.

As part of the company's 20th anniversary celebration, Match CEO Sam Yagan realized that the first Match babies are heading off to college. And the MatchMade Scholarship Contest was born.

To enter, kids of parents who met on Match submitted a 1-2 minute video and told their parents' love stories in a creative way -- sharing how Match impacted their life. And the prize? A $50,000 college scholarship.

"We're excited to help these kids get one step closer to going to college," says Yagan. "There are more than 1 million Match babies and MatchMade kids account for 5 percent of all births in the U.S. That's a lot of Match babies!"
