[TIPS] teachertube makeover contest

Wanna win $15k worth of cool classroom technology? Here’s one way you can try. TeacherTube has announced a contest in conjunction with Interwrite Learning that will have three winners receiving the prizes. Here’s how the site presents it:


“The complete interactive makeover is valued at approximately $15,000. In addition, winners will receive a $1,000 cash prize and a celebration party for the entire school. The contest will name one winner from the following three grade level segments: Kindergarten through fifth; sixth through eighth; and ninth through 12th.

The video will be judged on the following criteria: demonstration of effective use of technology, portrayal of teachers and students working together and the overall creativity and spirit. The video must be submitted by a teacher and the grade segment that the video will be judged in is determined by the grade level of that teacher. Interwrite must be mentioned once within the lyrics of the song. The conclusion must direct viewers to the Interwrite Learning Web site to vote. The video should be no longer than three minutes in length.”


Now, I KNOW that we’ve got some very creative kids out there. We’ve all seen samples of their work. Here’s a chance to produce a funny video and collect on the great prizes.


Spread the word! I’m anxious to see the entries.
