Posted by Diane Cadogan on May 12, 2015 |

The results are in and we are excited to announce the winners of the 2015 MySyncTV Contest! Our second annual contest called for students from across the country to produce their own version of our signature StudySync®TV videos, modeling student-led literary discussion groups around a text within StudySync. Our team was blown away by the thoughtful and creative submissions, and we are proud to honor that hard work here.  This year’s submissions are top notch!
