I found this as a creative way to get good testimonials from students:
Dear Walden University Students and Graduates,
Earlier this week I shared with you news of Walden’s new brand campaign, which celebrates our unique mission of positive social change. Today I am pleased to announce an exciting new component of the campaign, a video contest that could mean a $5,000 grand prize for you and a $2,500 prize for your favorite charity.
The contest, entitled “Scholars for Change,” is open to any Walden student or graduate who can tell us how Walden has helped you make a positive change in your career, your life, or the lives of others via a video submission. Videos should be no longer than three minutes and will be judged on
- How the story relates to Walden’s mission of positive social change
- How compelling or inspirational the story is to others
- How the story demonstrates the value of a Walden degree in effecting positive social change
- The quality of the video submission
We are offering five grand prizes, each worth $5,000. Grand-prize winners will also receive $2,500 for the charity of their choice. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate our student and graduate stories of achievement than by helping a worthy charity advance the greater good.
For more information, and to submit your video by September 14, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. EST, visit www.WaldenU.edu/contest.
