Remember how, when we visited the e-portfolio lab, I mentioned that there was an e-portfolio contest coming up?  And how a Philosophy 101 student won the grand prize last spring? 

The directors of LifeMap and e-portfolio sent me an email describing the contest for this year.  There are several categories in which one may submit a portfolio–they’re described on the contest website in more detail.

The deadline to submit a portfolio to the contest is May 12, 2014.  This is convenient, as it’s the day after portfolios are due in our course, so your portfolio will already be complete by that date–you won’t need to plan to do anything earlier than you already would. 

OK, you say.  But what’s the prize?  According to the website:  $100 prizes will be awarded to the students who demonstrate excellence in each of the categories, $250 grand prize will be awarded to the student who is selected as “Best in Show”.

Pretty good, if you ask me.

Here’s the contest website for more information:

TL;DR: Enter the BHCC e-portfolio contest and win up to $250.  Philosophy 101 portfolios seem to do pretty well in the contest.  Deadline is May 12.  Go here to find out more:
