I’m happy to offer Chairman’s Award and Woodie Flowers Awards submission assistance for the 2015 season for any FRC student participant who would like a review of their work.
Mentors, please feel free to let your students know about this opportunity.
I will review for redundancy, spelling or grammatical errors, inconsistencies, and other basics. I can also give pointers on how you may structure your essay. You are obviously not committed to using any of my corrections or suggestions - this is strictly peer review.
All I need is a Microsoft Word (.doc) file, Adobe (.pdf) file, or Google Doc link of your award submission for the 2015 Recycle Rush season. I’ll send back an edited copy with my recommendations and advice.
Here’s what you need to know:
- The confidentiality of your submission will be kept.
- I will have your submission back to you within 36-48 hours, or warn you in advance if it will be longer.
- I will edit and re-edit as many revisions of your entry as you would like.
- I will make suggestions, offer advice, and edit basic grammatical errors, but you must write the actual content for the submission yourself.
I am a 14-year FIRST veteran who believes strongly in teaching effective communication skills alongside developing students’ interests in STEM education. I have assisted tens of teams over the years and there have been many successful submissions as a result of peer reviews and hard work.
If you’re interested, please feel free to contact me via PM or ammorrison [at] gmail [dot] com.
Best wishes to all of you submitting for these awards this season!
