The Road Scholar 40th Anniversary Friendship Contest
And the winner is …
Congratulations to Patricia Timpanaro on winning the Road Scholar 40th Anniversary Friendship Stories Contest! Lifelong learners from around the world cast more than 46,000 votes for our 12 finalists and it was Patricia’s inspiring story that took the grand prize.
To celebrate our 40th anniversary year, we asked Road Scholars to share stories of friendships made or strengthened on our learning adventures. The 12 finalists were selected from a pool of more than 100 stories sent to our headquarters. Patricia has decided to split her prize — a gift certificate to put toward a future Road Scholar adventure — equally among her new friends. Check out the winning video below.
Congratulations, Pat! To all 12 of our finalists, to the more than 100 lifelong learners who submitted stories to our contest and to the thousands who cast their votes: Thank you!
"Road Scholar programs have been a blessing in my life."
