Credit By Exam

I get quite a few emails about the military education blog here - but this one seemed worthwhile in passing on.  DSST is announcing a contest they have just launched where veterans and military members will get the chance to win free DSST exams for college credit and a grand prize of $750 (the average amount saved by earning college credit through DSST vs. taking a 3-credit course in a traditional university setting).

The contest is geared towards veterans and military members because DSST tests (formerly known as the DANTES exam) allow for servicemen and women to earn college credit for the real-life experience they already have. With our contest, these courageous individuals can share their stories and be rewarded for it.

In order to submit an entry, users must visit the contest tab on the DSST Facebook page [ http://on.fb.me/oe1IJq ] and answer the following 3 questions:
  1. What is your story? [Ex: “I'm a veteran going back to school”]
  2. How can a DSST exam help you? [Ex: “It will allow me to earn college credit for the experience I already have”]
  3. What would you do with the money saved by earning college credit with DSST? [Ex: “Buy books for school”]
Each month, one entrant will win a free DSST exam voucher. The grand prize, to be awarded at the completion of the contest, is $750 towards the item(s) indicated in the answer to question #3. All contest entries will be judged on creativity, clarity, and relation to educational needs.
If you’d like to share this information with your network, you can direct them to the contest tab on our Facebook page [http://on.fb.me/oe1IJq].

Keep me posted if any of our readers win!!
