The votes are in! We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Instructor for a Day Student Scholarship Contest.

We asked students to show us what they would do to get fellow students engaged and involved in the learning process if they were the Instructor For A Day.

From among all the entries we received from college students, we narrowed the field to twenty student finalists. A public vote determined the winners.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
