Students: Write your way to $1000! — January 11 deadline

You don’t have to answer a quiz or sing all the lyrics.  You don’t even need to leave campus. You could be paid $1,000 for under an hour’s work (What an hourly pay rate!). Just get ready to produce your best writing and submit it for the Bill and Helen Sands Business Communication Scholarship. 

The competition will take you about an hour, and you can choose any of the hours from 12 midnight, Friday, January 13, to 11:59 p.m., Friday, January 20. The writing competition will be short mini-cases that require a quick inter-disciplinary computer search to write the document.

Send your name and e-mail address to Jane Johansen, Assoc. Prof. of Business Communication by midnight, Wednesday, January 11. You will receive instructions for logging on to the competition website. All College of Business sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to compete for the $1,000 scholarship. Join the happy winners who are $1,000 richer.
