Announcing the 2006 Discovery Educator Network National Poster Contest

Dencstpstr2_s2_1It is time to let your students’ creative abilities shine through participation in the 2006 Discovery Educator Network National Poster Contest. 

Challenge your students to express their love for learning by creating a digital image that shows how they "Connect to a World of Learning." 

• What do you enjoy learning?
• How do you learn?
• Where is the best place to learn?
• How does technology change what and how you learn?
• What inspires you to learn more about the world?

Students are permitted to use digital cameras to take photographs or create their image using means other than a digital camera (e.g., drawing the image with pencil and paper and scanning the image into digital format, developing the image on a computer using a painting or drawing program, etc.).  Judging will be based on creative expression, technical merit/image quality, and interpretation/relevance to the theme.   

Two winning images from each grade level range (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12) will be selected and awarded prizes.  Winning entries will be used in a poster design that will be distributed to thousands of classrooms across the world.

    Hi, Can we create a whole poster w/images?

    Your image could be a “collage” but keep in mind that if selected, that image will go into one of the windows/placeholders in the poster design. Too many images will probably make it difficult to see.
