Current NVC Students Encouraged to Participate in Two Contests

Winners of Each Contest Can Earn $1,000

Northwest Vista College is a member of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD), committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning, and leadership at community and technical colleges. NVC’s membership supports NISOD’s effort to bring together faculty, administrators and staff to share best practices that improve student achievement. Students at NISOD member colleges can participate in two NISOD contests.

Student Essay Contest for $1,000

Students will get to travel to the International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence in Austin, Texas  on May 27-30. The winner will have three nights lodging paid for and conference registration. Winners will read their essay at the conference on Sunday, May 28th.

To participate in the contest, students need to submit a 500-word (or less) essay about a faculty member, staff member or administrator who encouraged them to complete a course, finish a semester or graduate from college and how that encouragement helped the student reach his/her goals.
