Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
DialMyCalls, a web-based school notification system, just finished holding its second annual “Tweet For Success Scholarship Contest.” College students were tasked to, in 140 characters or less, explain the pros and cons of e-books versus traditional textbooks. At stake were four (4) $500 scholarships for the upcoming 2014 Fall semester.
Once again, well over 11,000 students entered the contest and had friends and family vote on which tweet was the most clever 140 character explanation. Two of the winners were selected by the amount of votes the submission received and then the other two winners were chosen by the DialMyCalls.com staff – it was extremely hard to only pick two as there were so many great entries.
