Since last week, we’ve been poring through nearly 600 scholarship entries videos for B-School. (That’s a record high for us!)
It’s been an absolute privilege, on behalf of myself and my team, to watch each and every video that has been submitted this year.
We’ve been laughing, crying, hootin’, hollerin’ and sending notes back and forth all week. Most of the time, though, we’ve just been in serious awe of you.
Who you are, your courage, your insight, your creativity and your willingness to go for it.
As you know, we believe in the power of B-School and sincerely hope you’ll join us for it.
But if, for whatever reason it’s not the right fit, know that we’re still cheering you on. We will continue to be here for you: providing education and inspiration each and every week, for free.
I’ll be honest, when I first announced this contest, I didn’t know what to expect. You’ll see that you’ve inspired me to award a lot more scholarships than any of us imagined.
