Sorry for having avoided blogging for a time. We’ve been slowly updating our blog engine and I didn’t want to tempt fate until all the pieces were working properly. I’m going to hope enough of them are in place to share this contest with you. Once again, I know it’s short notice, but even if you don’t submit your own project, you and your students can look in, learn and even vote on the most deserving:
“Make history in your school! Cintas and American Forests have partnered to award one winning school or community with Historic Trees from American Forests’ Historic Tree Program to be planted during a special presentation in honor of Earth Month. Historic Trees bring history alive by sharing America’s stories through the oldest living things in nature. Each Historic tree has a unique connection to a famous person, place or event.
To enter, submit a creative video that is 90 seconds or less, or an online submission stating why you think your school or community deserves to win.”
