Help AU spread the word about our student contest and have the chance to win gift cards!

AU’s annual student contest is now open to submissions and we’d love your help to spread the word!

The educator who refers the most students who enter the contest will receive a $100 Visa gift card and all educators who refer at least one student will be entered into a random raffle for one of ten $25 Visa gift cards.

We are excited to work with you to share this contest with students. With your help, we hope to reach a greater number of students than ever before.
