After landing student attempting to exit runway too quickly. Momentum of aircraft caused it to lean toward the outside of turn while crosswind was lifting inside wing up. Aircraft slowing down, and tilting toward outside of turn caused student to lean forward on controls and advance throttle, down elevator and propeller wash forced nose down, which led to a propeller strike. CFI's again, to your student, stress the importance of maintaining control after landing has been made. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated that he was with the student at the time of this incident. He further stated that the aircraft was a cessna 172. He believes that he will be a better instructor because of this incident with particular regard to assuring all students maintain aircraft control until it is 'parked.'
