You probably have already heard about the program StudySuccessful is participating in, the Back to School: Better Together program! I can tell you a lot more about it, but that is not what you want to know. You want to know what you can win and how to enter, right?

Those prizes would be reason enough for me to enter! And the contest isn’t that hard at all. I want to get to know you a little, so I need you to write a story, and since this program is named Better Together, I want a story about YOU working together with someone else. Here are the details.

  • Tell me your story about your best coorperation experience in your academic carreer. You don’t have to be a student anymore, but it must be a student story. This could be anything, setting up a school paper, working on a school project or something simple like joining a study group.
  • Include in the story at least one thing what went terribily wrong, but also tell about how you and your partner solved these problems.
  • Give at the end of the story two tips for working together.
  • If you own a blog, post your story on your blog. And email the link to me ( If you don’t own a blog, just email me the story! Equal chances!
  • And the last thing you should do is tweeting this: I entered the contest from @StudySuccessful and I am going to win 2 laptops! #HPBTS

And one more tip, send a real story. Fake stories are not fun to read, not fun to write and they stink.
