In each week leading up to the main drawing, one MyEdu member will also be chosen to receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
MyEdu provides a free platform to students to help them succeed in college; this includes schedule planning tools, rich course information on millions of college courses, and a highly visual professional profile that students can use to demonstrate their skills and experience to peers and employers.

a. Student's name
b. Name of the student's school
c. Name of degree type (Bachelors, Associates, Masters, Certificate)

WHAT IS THE MYEDU STUDENT PROFILE?
A MyEdu Student Profile is typically the first professional online profile for college students. Students are able to tell their college story all in one place; showing classmates and employers what they accomplished during classes, projects, volunteering, internships and other pertinent work experiences. The more information a student includes in a MyEdu Profile, the better positioned the student is to demonstrate their capabilities and connect with the right potential employers.

From the day they begin college students can utilize MyEdu's data-rich applications to plan their course of study, visually display their skills and credentials, connect with hiring managers and secure jobs and internships. The platform is currently used by more than 1 million students across 800+ campuses nationwide and has been endorsed by corporations and major higher education institutions for its mission to increase Return on Education (ROE).
