2007 Excellence in Project Accounting Philosophy Essay Scholarship Contest Begins

The 2007 Excellence in Project Accounting Philosophy essay scholarship contest launches on January 1, 2007. The winning essayist will receive $500 toward college tuition and fees from Journyx, the first company to provide Web-based time-tracking and project accounting solutions that guide customers to per-person, per-project profitability.

“Journyx is committed to eradicating cost ignorance from our knowledge worker society and leading organizations to the highest levels of profitability through innovation,” Curt Finch, chief executive officer (CEO) of Journyx said in a prepared statement. “We developed this essay scholarship so that we could educate and share our philosophy with some of the bright minds about to enter the workforce, as well as learn new ideas from them. We will choose the submission that is the most creative and has the most real-world business applicability.”

The scholarship is open to full-time student enrolled in a graduate level masters or doctoral level degree program at a university in the United States. Interested students should contribute an essay of 1,000 words or less on one of the following two topics:

  • Persuade someone who doesn’t want to track his time on a per product per-activity basis why it is in his best interests to do so.

  • Describe a real situation that you’ve encountered where project oriented time tracking has made a positive difference in the world.

Complete rules and details, including how the essays will be scored, where to send the entries, etc., can be found at www.journyx.com/company/scholarship.html All entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. CST on June 1, 2007.
