School’s in and so is the first video contest I’ve run across for this academic year. Our good friends over at Technology & Learning, NewBay Media are offering a Lenovo laptop and Adobe Digital School Collection to first place winners in each of the three age groups (elementary, middle school, and high school) and three second place prizes of Adobe Digital School Collection for each grade group. Plus, you can get your principal out of the building for a few days! “Student’s principal will win airfare, accommodations, and admission to an upcoming 21st Century Connections event.” All you have to do is submit a 2-3 minute PSA (public service announcement) on why digital technology is important in today’s schools. Check in at the 21st Century Connections website for all the details. Deadline is October 19, 2007.
Watch for our own DEN media competition coming this fall. We’re in the final process of firming up the details before our official announcement and invitation to join.
