Congratulations to AWeber’s 2012 Scholarship Winner!
he 2013 AWeber Email Marketing Scholarship is now open! Are you a student looking for ways to offset the cost of college? Have an opinion on how people will communicate in the future? Apply by May 1st, 2013 for AWeber’s $1,000 scholarship!
We are very pleased to announce that the 2012 Email Marketing Scholarship has been awarded to…
Kaylyn Fox of Maryland!
Nearly 400 students submitted essays answering the question,
“If the communication tool you use the most went away forever tomorrow, how would your communication habits change? How would you cope with the loss of that tool? Would you still do the things that you used to rely on that (now gone) tool for?”
Kaylyn’s response was chosen by a panel of judges for its critical thought and clarity of expression.
She also clearly represented the predominant trend we found among responses: the lack of dependence on any single medium of communication. Today’s abundance of options makes this a nonissue. As Kaylyn expressed:
Kaylyn is excited to be attending the University of Alabama, where she will be studying civil engineering and political science. Regarding further use of communication technology, she says, “While there are definitely negative aspects to the increased involvement of technology in our lives and no one really knows the consequences those side effects will bring in the future, technology is still an inherently good thing in the development of our world and there’s no turning back from it now.”
We wish Kaylyn the best of luck in her studies and beyond!
