Nominate a Former Student for the 2011 GREAT Awards

LabSim instructors at private sector colleges and universities, have you recently had an IT student who really stands out to you for his or her excellence? Someone who beat the odds and overcame obstacles to succeed in an IT education and then career? Now is the time you can give that former student some much-deserved recognition.

The Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities sponsors the 2011 GREAT Awards that honor recent graduates of career education who have achieved success in spite of significant difficulty. Winning students (5 last year) are given an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony on Capitol Hill before members of Congress.

As you think of the students in your classes over the past several years, some students probably stand out in your mind as those who excelled above others in IT training. Did their work ethic set them apart? You can probably also think of students who have gone on to find success in their IT career. But as you think about your past students, those who have achieved both successes in the face of difficult circumstances stand apart from the rest. Perhaps the student you’re thinking of struggles daily with a physical disability that made their education difficult. Perhaps the student supported a family while working and going to college. Whatever the circumstance, the academic and career achievements of your former student may be recognized through the GREAT Awards.

Please take a few minutes to nominate the student or students you’re thinking of by completing the GREAT Awards nomination form before December 31, 2010.
