Those of you who attended our Spring Training may remember Jannita Demian from California. She was the field manager that had enough energy for everyone in the room and really wanted to see an alligator while here. Jannita was a tremendous help to us for FETC and I am so excited that I get to go help her and the West Coast Team with their event in San Diego at the end of this month.
But wait, did I just hear someone say, "I want to go to San Diego? " Guess what- YOU CAN! Well, you can’t go with me to West Coast event, but Discovery Educator Network Members have a chance to win a scholarship to the 2006 NECC to be held in San Diego!
What do you have to do to enter? It’s actually pretty easy. How many of you have explored the various resources on the Discovery Educator Network website? We have quite a few there, but we really want MORE! So, to help drive the uploading of quality resources that can be used by educators around the world we are holding our next big promotion!
Between April 19 and May 19th 2006, the Discovery Educator Network members may earn rewards by uploading resources to the Discovery Educator Network website. (www.discoveryeducatornetwork.com) resource library*.
Grand Prize: The Discovery Educators who upload and receive approval for the most resources to the resource library during the term of the contest will win an Educational scholarship* to attend the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) in San Diego July 5-7, 2006. Ten (10) Grand Prizes will be awarded.
And of course,there is a participation prize. Discovery Educator Network members who upload and receive approval for at least two (2) approved resources to the site between April 19-May 17, 2006 will receive a USB hub.
So while you’re doing all those events for our Florida Contest, start working on resources! Maybe even try to squeeze in a few "Make and Take" events for the Florida Contest.
