It 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.
Any student of a STAR Discovery Educator can participate.
