On behalf of the Academic Integrity Implementation Committee, I’m reaching out to ask you to publicize a contest we’re running to name the Academic Integrity Initiative we’ve been working on.
This semester we are hosting a contest to name the Academic Integrity information campaign and want your students’ creative ideas for a tagline that the College can use when communicating the importance of honesty in all academic endeavors. The caption selected for the campaign will be used in advertising, publicity and informational materials for the College’s Academic Integrity initiative, slated to start this fall.
The first prize is a $1500 award that can be used towards tuition as well as in our bookstore. There will also be two $500 prizes awarded.
Students should submit their ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve attached the brochure we handed out to new students during last week’s NSO tabling events – feel free to share the handout or the information in it freely! For additional resources, including suggestions for how you can support Academic Integrity, please visit http://www.codlrc.org/AcademicHonesty
As you are getting your Fall classes together, please consider announcing this contest on the first day of class – you might find it is an excellent segue into discussing your plagiarism policies, student honesty, and academic integrity in general.

Attention all Designers & Non-Designers!
I have attached the Submission Guidelines and the Registration Form for the Library Runway Unconventional Challenge! If someone is interested in participating, they should get the Registration Form back to me A.S.A.P. as I am working on a program for the event this Saturday. The Registration Form includes the library’s fax number.
The good news is you don’t have to sew the entire garment. Participants are allowed to use base garments on which to build their final product.
Please feel free to call me back if you have any questions or send an email with students who wish to participate.
The Cherry Valley Public Library is sponsoring an event on June 17 called Library Runway! Based on the popular reality show Project Runway!, participants will be tasked with an unconventional challenge….creating a garment out of the printed page. Book pages, magazine pages, newspaper, any kind of printed page may be used to create the garment of their choice.
In addition, Project Runway! alum Peach Carr, a Chicago-based fashion designer will be on hand to judge the entries.
Library Runway! is open to any participants age 12 and up; teams are limited to 1-3 members. I have attached a flyer with all the relevant information. Most importantly, participants must attend an informational meeting on Saturday, June 3 at 9:00am at the library to register and receive guidelines for their submissions.
If you have any questions, you can send an email message to email@example.com or call me at the library at (815) 332-5161.
