Summer Experiences

13 02 2009


It’s never too early to start making summer plans. Ever tried camp? A creative writing or acting program? Or maybe you want to get a head start on some college courses. Teen Ink, a magazine written for and by teens, has compiled a great list of opportunities taking place over the summer.

You can check out programs offering things like archaeology, dance or game design. You can even learn a new language! The possibilities are endless. So rather than sit on the couch and watch boring re-runs all summer, try doing something new and exciting. Oh, and it won’t look too shabby on your resume or college application either 😉

Want to win $10,000 for higher education expenses?! Enter a 30-second video contest at for a chance to win!

We work with Upromise and for many families and students struggling with today’s economy, college tuition simply breaks the bank. Upromise is offering a creative opportunity for future, current and even recent graduates to win $10,000 toward higher education expenses.

The Tuition Tales video contest launches on March 24 and runs through May 3, and encourages people to submit a 30-second video entry at The videos will be judged on creativity, quality and a demonstrated need for help paying for college. One contestant in each of three categories – Saving for College, In College Now and Paying it Back – will win $10,000 for college education expenses. Twelve finalists will win a $250 Bed Bath & Beyond® gift card and $250 Bank of America Visa Check Card.

The top 12 videos will be selected by a combination of online votes and a panel of judges. Once selected, all 12 finalists will be posted online and the public will vote (May 13 – 19) to determine which Tuition Tales video wins in each category. Contestants must be at least 18 years old to enter and can submit entries on behalf of themselves, a family member or friend.

To see last year’s winning video, let me know and I will send it your way. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at 561-998-1995 or email me at

Good luck!
