Incentives & Benefits
Weekly Raffle & Prizes
For each course that you are signed up to be a Peer Note Taker for, you will have your name entered into our weekly raffle. Additional entries will be determined weekly by timeliness of notes submission, etc. Prizes will include gift cards and/or items from local businesses within the Burlington area. If notes are not submitted for any given class session during the week, your entry for that course will not be eligible for that week’s drawing.
At the end of the year, we will host a Grand Prize Raffle. Your name will be entered to win BIG prizes for each class that you’ve taken notes for throughout Fall/Spring semesters. Stay tuned for more information on our end of the year celebration and Grand Prize Raffle!

Peer Note Taker, Academic Support Programs, UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT
As a volunteer Peer Note Taker at the University of Vermont, I grew as a scholar and as in individual. I was responsible for diligently recording, organizing and delivering high quality notes for other students on campus who needed academic support. I learned and practiced time management and honed my attention to detail. The responsibility I took on in this position has helped prepare me…
- Time Management
- Attention to Detail
- Responsibility, Reliability
- Volunteerism, and helping others
- Leadership, Community Involvement
Peer Note Takers, upon reflection of their time spent in their role, notice improved attendance in their courses, increased quality and detail of their notes, a greater attention span, eagerness to participate in class and/or other activities on campus, as well as the personal reward of helping other students on campus.
