The Broward College, South Campus Career Center sponsored a Poetry and Poster Contest for students as part of National Career Development Month in November 2014. The theme was “Re-Imaging Life’s Possibilities: Celebrating First Jobs Through Encore Careers”. Fourteen poems were submitted and twenty-four posters were submitted. First, second, and third place winners were to the state-wide competition. First place winners received a 3-credit scholarship for Spring 2015, provided by Student Financial Services. Second place winners received a Kindle, provided by Student Life. Third place winners received a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card, provided by The Orange Island Arts Foundation. In 2013, one of our students won first place in the national competition. In 2014, Rachel Mane won third place in the Adult Poster division of the National Career Development Association’s Poetry and Poster Contest.
