ICC Merit Pages :: Promoting student successes
Did your students compete in a competition? Participate in a service learning project? Win an award? Achieve acceptance into a competitive program? These are all examples of great Merit stories!
ICC students are doing amazing things, and Merit Pages allows us to share those accomplishments through individual pages crafted specifically for each student. Students will receive a “Merit badge” for their achievements, which can be posted to their individual page and shared on social media. They also can forward the link to their page to family and friends. Sometimes we share these accomplishments with the student’s hometown newspapers. The best part about Merit is that students also can customize their page to reflect clubs and work experience and then forward the link to their page to potential employers.
ICC also forwards some achievements to a student’s former high school so the school officials can see how successful their alumni are becoming. This helps the College promote programs to potential students.

As we begin the fall 2017 semester, keep Merit in mind as your students do great things in the classroom, program, clubs, and extracurricular activities. To get started, fill out the information on the Merit Contribution Form to suggest Merit story ideas and upload student participants. Chief Public Relations Officer Valerie Welsh then reviews these suggested achievement stories to publish as Merit badges, news releases for hometown newspapers, or both!
See examples of how these stories are shared on ICC’s official Merit Page.
***NEW this semester! Merit is launching a new mobile app for iOS and Android for anyone with a student page.
