We get a lot of requests at The Campus Companion to do press releases, but most of them are garbage. However, when Questia got in contact with us about their “Most Valuable Professor” Competition we thought it was a really cool way to give some credit to our nation’s educators.
They are notoriously underpaid and underappreciated, and we thought that this competition would be a phenomenal way to highlight the impact that a great teacher can have on a student.
The most exciting part about the competition is that at the end 3 scholarships for $2,500 will be awarded in the names of the winning professors!
Read below for specifics on the competition.
Questia, a premier online research tool for students, just launched their “Questia’s Most Valuable Professor Competition”. This competition allows students to nominate their favorite professors for the impact they’ve had on them.
At the end of the promotion Questia will be creating multiple $2,500 scholarships in that professors name. You can learn more about the promotion here.
Questia will be taking nominations through April 18th in which students can honor the professors who have had lasting impressions on their education and lives.
To nominate your professor, visit Questia on Facebook; and tell Questia why your professor deserves the Most Valuable Professor title. Following the nomination period, a jury of Questia’s researchers will select the top ten professors based on student testimonials.
Voting will then be open to the public to determine which of the top ten professors will ultimately receive Questia’s National Title of MVP.
