Entrepreneurship Scholarship Opportunity

When 95% of all employers believe that the workforce needs to be more entrepreneurial, it becomes clear that the U.S. is facing a problem; students are finishing school without the skills to perform successfully in the workplace.

The NFIB Entrepreneurship Educator Award recognizes and rewards educators who are meeting this need. The winner will receive $1,000.00  to be used for educational resources or trainings.

If you incorporate entrepreneurship in your teaching, apply for the NFIB Entrepreneurship Educator Award by submitting a 2 minute video describing your best practices and outcomes in entrepreneurial education. Applications are due March 31, 2014.

(For example, haven't passed one part of the PPST, low GPA or haven't take a prerequisite class)  It does not admit them to the program and it is not automatically approved - a COPTSP committee will review all waivers.  If the candidate has not met all admission requirements and has not submitted a waiver, they will not be able to enroll in upper level restricted classes.

Perhaps this is related to the bullying post I just sent? Perhaps it is related to teenage perceptions? Whatever, it is worth the quick watch and would be AWESOME to create a discussion in your Marketing classes (or any Business class) about ethics, responsibility, etc.

Powerful Video - regarding bullying

Have you thought about you will deal with bullying in your classroom? in your school? Our responsibilities go far beyond the four walls of our classroom and delivering lessons on Marketing or Web Design...
