Winners Announced in the Most Memorable Mentor Contest!

Published 25 May 10 02:25 PM
We were thrilled and inspired!

I read every single one of the 250 entries. Some made me laugh and others put me near tears. Our Most Memorable Mentor contest, held in celebration of National Nurses Week, just wrapped up, and the winners were announced yesterday.

The grand prize winner (mentor: Louise Sink; mentee: her daughter, Robin Deal) shared her story and won the $500 gift certificate to ADVANCE Healthcare Shop. In addition, the winner got to choose a charity to donate $500 to, and Louise and her daughter chose the American Cancer Society® as the recipient. I'd share more about their story, but you can read all about it on ADVANCE for Nurses, and in addition, you can see all the winning entries on the Most Memorable Mentor contest page.

In all, we gave away the $500 grand prize and the $500 donation, as well as a $100 gift certificate to the runner-up and four $25 gift certificates to the four honorable mentions. To boot, everyone who entered received a code for 20 percent off of an order at ADVANCE Healthcare Shop.  

I thought all of the entries were touching in their own ways, and the contest was a really positive spin on the nursing profession, which sometimes gets a bad rap when it comes to helping out nurses new to the field. Congrats to Louise, Robin and all of the winners!!

About Lynn Jusinski

After an internship at a home magazine where she wrote about media rooms and $500,000 pool renovations from the comfort of a teeny, cluttered dorm room, Lynn Jusinski graduated from a small college in Pennsylvania and then moved on to write for two weekly newspapers in suburban Philadelphia. A column she penned for the papers won an award from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. In 2007, Lynn moved back to the magazine world, and worked full-time as an associate editor for ADVANCE for Health Information Professionals. Her work on the magazine led to “Rookie of the Year” honors and a second place feature award in the annual Editorial Excellence Awards presented by Merion Publications Inc. In her free time, Lynn is typically stuck in traffic, shopping, reading, constructing poorly made crafts and hanging out in and around her hometown.
