Strong academic skills are incredibly important in all walks of life, and we hope students will use this free, fun contest to improve their academic growth. The more children learn, the more they will succeed in school and in life.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
To help encourage a love of learning and succeed at school in the new academic year, Sylvan Learning centers of Greater Boston today announced the launch of “Stories for Success,” a Facebook contest designed to showcase how educational experiences have had a profound impact on someone’s life and led to greater success in life.
Sylvan Learning, North America’s leading provider of tutoring to students of all ages, grades and skill levels will run this contest through September 6, 2012. To enter the contest, participants must start by clicking “Like” on the Sylvan Learning Centers of Boston's Facebook page. Entrants can then submit their story on the Stories for Success Facebook tab. These stories can highlight an educational experience with an individual teacher, a mentor, an educational program, a tutoring program, a workshop, a conference, and more—any experience that led to a specific achievement or overarching success in life. Entrants must explain in detail—but in no more than 500 words—how their educational experience led them to succeed.
“Strong academic skills are incredibly important in all walks of life, and we hope students will use this free, fun contest to improve their academic growth,” says Dr. Richard E. Bavaria, senior vice president of education outreach for Sylvan Learning. “The more children learn, the more they will succeed in school and in life.”
The contest offers exciting prizes: The top three entries will be selected for a chance to win a grand prize of five to eight weeks of free private tutoring, redeemable at any of the 10 Greater Boston Area Sylvan Learning Centers: Brookline, Franklin, Braintree, Peabody, Hanover, Woburn, Easton, N. Chelmsford., Portsmouth, NH and Salem, NH.
The runner-up receives an iPad, and the third-place winner receives a $100 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
