Online-Education.net, a portal for students seeking online education, recently chose Deborah Naybor and Tinisha Sahadeo as the winners of their essay contest, and each has won a $2,000 scholarship to the college of their choice. Participants submitted an essay answering one of two questions: “What made you want to become a nurse?” or “Who inspired you to become a teacher?”
“This contest provided current and prospective students with the opportunity to express their passion for education and Deborah’s and Tinisha’s essays did so in a heartfelt and thought-provoking manner,” said Seth Restaino, spokesperson for Online-Education.net

On January 7, Online-Education.net launched its second scholarship contest. As before, entrants will submit a 500-word essay for a chance to win one of two $2,000 scholarship awards. The essay topics are: “What TV character’s career would you like to have and why?” and “Design a syllabus for an online course you’d like to take.”
“We hope to continue this contest for as long as possible and provide many, many more students with the opportunity to win scholarships to further their education,” said Restaino.
