ScholarshipPoints (http://www.scholarshippoints.com), along with its membership base of over 2 million students, is recognizing outstanding men and women who work towards better educating the world every day. Over the last month, members of this unique college scholarship reward program were asked to submit an essay nominating an educator who has encouraged them to succeed in education, inspired members of the student body, and positively impacted their school as a whole. Over 1,000 students participated with the goal of winning a $1,000 scholarship award and a $1,000 donation to their educator’s school scholarship fund.
The top five essays were determined by the amount of feedback the each essay received through blog comments, Facebook “Likes”, and emails from fellow students and. The grand prize-winner will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced on July 1st.
Kim LeMoon, a student at Rutgers University, is one of the contest finalists. In her essay, "To Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores", Kim sings the praises of one of her freshman year professors. “She is the kind of teacher who created opportunities for active learning, promoting independent though and expression, rather than merely imparting information,” wrote Kim. “I hope that one day I might become the kind of professor that inspires students the way my professor has inspired me.”
