Over the years, MyBookBuyer.com has worked hard to continue to be an important resource for college students who need to sell books for cash at the end of the school semester. MyBookBuyer has been in the textbook buyback industry for over a decade, and has learned how difficult it is for many students to afford the ascending cost of books and the financial hardship it can create. The Textbooks for a Year Scholarship Essay Contest was created to provide winning students with enough money to pay for their textbooks for an entire year and just one more way that MyBookBuyer is working to reduce the financial burden of school for students and help them to better afford the inflating cost of tuition and textbooks. Once again, this Fall hundreds of students from colleges and universities throughout the country entered the contest. Presently, the submissions are being reviewed by an impartial in-house committee and the winner will be announced on their website home page by January 21, 2013.
"Many students have communicated to us over the years what incredible stress the mounting cost of books have become," says Michael Der, company founder. "In fact, many of them sought out our buyback service over the internet as a resource they could use to actually help them put together enough money to purchase their books for their next semester. During this holiday season, I'm reminded when Fall 2010 winner, Jessica Gresko from Georgetown University, wrote, 'only education can better the life of an entire population' and the important role we can all play in affecting one another's lives."
MyBookBuyer will continue to work hard to help make textbooks more affordable for all the students who come to the textbook buyback site and are proud to donate thousands of books to Resource Area For Teachers (RAFT), a non-profit organization that provides classroom materials to teachers.
