The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives around them, but perhaps hasn't had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education
Manchester, N.H. (Vocus) September 16, 2009 –
Southern New Hampshire University, FOX25 – Boston and Star Media have teamed up for the second consecutive year to offer the Go-Getters Challenge, a promotion that will give one contestant an opportunity to complete and earn a full scholarship toward a Global M.B.A. The promotion began Tuesday, Sept. 15, when SNHU President Paul LeBlanc appeared on “FOX25 Morning News” to unveil the contest rules. Contest information is available at Fox25.
Last year’s winner, Jennifer Allen of Mexico City, Mexico, is working on her Global M.B.A. through SNHU Online and explains on YouTube how the Go-Getters Challenge has impacted her life.
Contestants will be required to write a 500-word essay explaining how a Global M.B.A. would impact their lives. SNHU staff and faculty members will serve as judges and will select six semi-finalists. Judges will conduct on-campus interviews and review resumes and transcripts to narrow the field to three. The three finalists will appear on “FOX25 Morning News” on Nov. 2. Viewers will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite contestants at myfoxboston.com. The winner will then be announced on Nov. 5.
The winner will have the option of completing his/her degree on campus, on location, or online, or a combination.
“The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives around them, but perhaps hasn’t had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education,” LeBlanc said. “Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible.”
