Announcing the Video Contest Winners for the Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training

We recently held a contest for scholarships for our premier professional offering – the Eating Psychology Coach Certification Training – and we’re thrilled with the results. We asked participants to create a brief video titled “ Why I Want to Win a Scholarship to the Eating Psychology Coach Training.” We also asked that it be real, honest, personal, and to include whatever creative touches felt right.

Winners were chosen based on content of the video, the overall feel, how it moved us, and the number of views the video received.

We were so excited to see so many great entries. Here at the Institute, we spent time watching one heart-warming video after the next. Our staff shed quite a few tears, and we were truly inspired by the wisdom, the passion, and the wonderful stories that people shared. Thank you so much for your entries!

Some further good news: because we received so many great videos, we decided to add in a few more scholarships, so, we included three extra 3rd place prizes.

For those of you who submitted videos but were not chosen for a scholarship, please accept our warmest appreciation and gratitude for your efforts and sincerity. Every submission had something special, and there were some difficult choices we needed to make. That’s the hard part of holding such a contest. The good news is, there were some well deserving winners who did such a great job.

And here they are – congratulations!

1st Place: Tammy Shemesh

2nd Place: Linda McVetty

3rd Place: Nikki Lucas

3rd Place: Jessica McCleskey Hood

3rd Place: Marilyn Hinson

3rd Place: Evelyn Pharm

We also wanted to share some videos that didn’t win, but certainly touched us.

    What fabulous videos and wonderful people. Congratulations to those that have got the scholarship placements and to those of you who’s videos are here for us to share.
    I was a member of the 2013/14 class and have to tell you just how fantastic the course was, Marc David is a wonderful teacher and I now refer to him as my Mentor, and the beautiful Emily Rosen is just that, a beautiful person and soul who gives of herself in every way.
    You could not study with a better people than Marc and Emily and the IPE team.
    As a student I can say the work was astounding, we learned so much and what you need to know is that the community we became is still together online, sharing, learning and helping each other.

    So congratulations, and to those that didn’t get the scholarship I highly recommend that you sign up even if you have borrow, beg or whatever to get the money and invest in your health, life and the work you can share with others. Believe me it is an investment that will give back to you in so many ways.

  • Hello everyone!

    Take care,
