UA announces winner of myTRACK Alaska Airlines contest

For Immediate Release
Monday, Nov. 24, 2014

University of Alaska student Danielle Dallmann won two round-trip tickets courtesy of Alaska Airlines as part of the university’s myTRACK photo contest.

In the contest, students posted a “selfie” to UA’s Facebook site indicating with their fingers how many years it would take to earn their degrees.  The contest is part of UA’s annual Stay on TRACK campaign, now in its fourth year, which encourages students to graduate on time and with less debt.

The contest ran July through October. Dallmann, a Juneau student who is Hawaii-bound with her winning tickets, had this advice to share with fellow students: “do not assume that taking 15 credits a semester is ‘too much work’. Once you register for those classes and begin taking them, you'll realize that 15 credits is actually quite a manageable load.”
