TORONTO, ON - April 16, 2012 - ScholarshipsCanada.com followed up the Dream BIG Contest with a contest in March to celebrate our educators. The Dream Maker Award was an opportunity for students to acknowledge their teachers, professors, counsellors and administrators who have made a positive difference in their education.
With 30 video submissions from students all over the world, the ScholarshipsCanada.com community was enthusiastic in their praise and admiration for their Dream Makers. Students shared how their Dream Makers inspired them to pursue certain career paths, make a change in the world or to simply follow their dreams.
After two weeks of reviewing all their hard work, which was scored on the depth of creativity, inspiration and production value, the ScholarshipsCanada.com Team has announced a winner!
