Have you thanked your TA today? College students now have the chance to thank the TA (teaching assistant) who has had the biggest impact on their education through the first ever America’s Top TA competition by CengageBrain.
College scholarships created in honor of America’s Top TA!
For the grand prize, CengageBrain, the premier destination for purchasing discount college textbooks, will establish three $2,500 scholarships in the winning TA’s name, and the reigning Top TA will be part of the integral team that determines the scholarship criteria and selects the scholarship recipients. Plus, every student who submits a nomination will automatically be entered to win one of three $50 Visa gift cards.
To nominate a TA, visit CengageBrain’s Facebook page and tell us why your teaching assistant is America’s Top TA. Following the nomination period, a jury of CengageBrain Student Ambassadors will select the top ten finalists based on the submitted testimonials. Voting will then be open to the public to determine which of the top ten teaching assistants will ultimately receive CengageBrain’s national title of America’s Top TA.
“Good TAs set up discussion sessions or study groups outside of class to offer extra help,” says Joe Miller, Director of Student Advocacy at CengageBrain. “They often even conduct several classes entirely on their own during a semester, and this is on top of taking classes or conducting research themselves. We probably don’t give them enough credit. Nominating a teaching assistant for America’s Top TA is a phenomenal way to thank a hardworking TA who takes the time to look out for both their academic success and yours.”
