Students Invited to Compete in ‘Motivate to Complete’

Waubonsee Community College students are invited to take part in the second annual “Motivate to Complete” Public Service Announcement Contest, which aims to inspire students to complete their studies.

The competition, created and coordinated by Professor of Communications Larry Modaff, began last year. Modaff said that in light of local, state and national emphasis on college completion, he wanted to encourage Waubonsee students to explore their own college-related motivations and articulate those to their peers.

The contest’s prize money of $500 for first place, $350 for second, and $200 for third, is provided by the Waubonsee Student Senate. Students who would like to learn more about the competition can visit Prize-winning entries from last year’s contest can be viewed at

Entries are due by 3 p.m. on Monday, April 25th. In early May, an awards ceremony will be held to announce the three winning entries. Entries will be judged on creativity, production value, potential to inspire, and clarity and logic of the written description.
