Like we mentioned yesterday, we had so many amazing entries to our #ShareTheShirt contest this last week, we couldn't choose only four. Instead we selected our favorite ten hero stories!
And our final five winner selections are (drumroll, please):
6) Max Salem and Tristin Haniquin.
From Max: "My Quizlet hero is none other than my flight instructor Tristin Haniquin. Learning to fly is something I’ve always wanted to do. [...] However, the body of knowledge associated with obtaining a student pilot's license has for a long time been a major hurtle for me. Having the ability to study the pre-solo written test material, written by my Instructor, on the go has helped greatly improve my proficiency in aviation knowledge. I would like to thank the hard working people at Quizlet and my dedicated flight instructor Tristin Haniquin for their role in helping me to attain my latest goal, flying an airplane by myself." Keep crushing those goals, Max; we're happy to help and to share a shirt with Tristin!
7) Carla Adem, Jenna Grosvenor, Claire Tiffin, and Claire Brinkmann.
Carla tweeted that her friends, Claire and Claire, save her grades by posting sets for their biology class. Jenna also wrote in about these two Quizlet heroes, saying they've saved her with their comprehensive world history sets, and are known to "put puns in them so you can remember and just to be funny." We love puns too; thanks for making studying easy and fun for your classmates, Claires!
8) Tracy Wittman and Mrs. Signal.
Tracy nominated her mentor and former high school economics teacher, Mrs. Signal, who introduced her to Quizlet and "changed [her] life forever." Tracy has been in college for a semester now, and feels that because of Quizlet her studying habits "have improved ten-fold!" We hope Tracy and Mrs. Signal's new shirts helps them introduce even more students to Quizlet!
9) Rohan Patel and Jeremy Browers.
Rohan let us know that Jeremy is known as "Mr. Quizlet" at Cooper City High School, and has helped make Quizlet one of the most popular websites used at their school. Jeremy has also created a Quizlet class for their grade, which currently has over 180 sets and 90 members! Rohan appreciates Jeremy taking the "initiative to make Quizlets for upcoming tests or quizzes in order to help keep everyone prepared," and has seen first-hand the huge amount of time and effort Jeremy puts into it. We love the dedication, Jeremy — you're definitely a Quizlet hero!
10) Sophia Xu and Najwa.
Sophia and friends posted an awesome video celebrating Najwa as their Quizlet hero. Apparently, Najwa always has reviews ready to go, coming in clutch when her classmates need them, and some students would be failing without her sets. We agree that Najwa's hard work is definitely worthy of a Quizlet shirt and our hero title; thanks for the nomination, Sophia!
While this contest has come to an end, we will continue to appreciate and celebrate amazing stories of Quizlet heroes and how our tools have made a difference in your life. You can always share via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram; write in to us; or post a testimonial on our site.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in #ShareTheShirt!
