Held in honor of former Community College Week editor Scott Wright, this annual essay contest asks participants to complete a 500-word essay on "a faculty member, staff member, or administrator who encouraged them to complete a course, finish a semester, or graduate from college and how that encouragement helped them reach their goal(s)."
Three students will be selected as winners, with both the authors and featured individual receiving $1,000 checks. The student winners will also gain a complimentary 2021-2022 NISOD membership and be featured on NISOD's website. Essays will be evaluated on the basis of content, originality, clarity, organization, conciseness, and grammar.
Those interested in participating should submit by the March 12 deadline.
