In celebration of Kuder's 75th anniversary, we conducted a fun and inspirational competition in 2013, The Ultimate Kuder Fan Contest. The contest invited Kuder Administrative Database Management System®  users to submit a two-minute video illustrating who they are, why they love Kuder, and how Kuder has impacted the future of their students/clients or the success of their organization. Anyone and everyone was encouraged to cast their vote for their favorite video.

With over 50% of the votes, Hazel Aquino was named Kuder's Ultimate Fan! In turn, she was awarded a four-day, three-night trip to Sanibel Island, FL, a favorite vacation spot of Dr. Frederic Kuder.

My relationship with Kuder began a few years ago when a friend of mine told me about it. I automatically fell in love with Kuder's solutions when I began administering the paper versions of their career assessments. As an administrator for Kuder Navigator®, an online college and career planning system for secondary students, I like that this resource has several tools and features that make my role as a college advisor easier and more efficient.

Last fall, Kuder announced their Ultimate Fan contest in celebration of their 75th anniversary. The winner was declared as the person that best demonstrated why they love Kuder and how Kuder has impacted their users and organization through a two-minute video submission. Kuder's Facebook fans voted on who would be awarded a trip for two to Sanibel, Florida, and that person was me!!!!


My husband, my daughter, and I had the time of our lives walking along the beach, swimming in the ocean, admiring beautiful seashells, eating delicious food, and sleeping at a comfortable, fully equipped beach house  – all of which was arranged by Kuder's exceptional team. Simply amazing!

I am extremely thankful not only for the wonderful summer vacation Kuder provided for my family, but also for simplifying my job on a daily basis. 


Also, I thank them for all the tips and advice they post on and social media pages – it has enriched my knowledge about career development!

Every year I grow more and more in love with Kuder and I am sure this school year will be no exception!
