Which STARs want to go to the tundra?

Seriously.  The title of the post is real.  If you are a STAR Discovery Educator, in good standing, active, polished, full of DEN-thusiasm and all that stuff, pay attention.

Our amazing friends at Polar Bears International have offered two full scholarships to active members of the DEN community (i.e., STAR Discovery Educators) to attend their Leadership Camp in October 2012.

You can access the application at: http://links.discoveryeducation.com/PBIcontest 

Official rules can be found here: DENpbiCONTESTofficialrules

And the deadline is MAY 30!

Two STAR Discovery Educators will be selected to each receive a full scholarship, courtesy of PBI, to the Polar Bears International Leadership Camp, which lasts from October 7 to 13, 2012 in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.

What do you have to do?

Create an original video that does not exceed ninety (90) seconds in length that answers the following question: “If selected as a DEN Ambassador how will you bring your experience at Polar Bears International Leadership Camp in Churchill, Manitoba Canada back to your community?”. Entries must be submitted in English and must comply in all aspects with the Official Rules.

Apply soon.  Very soon.  By May 30, actually.



All videos will first be screened to ensure they meet the entry criteria. A panel of judges from Discovery Education will then score qualifying videos. Videos will be scored using the following judging criteria:

  • Content (40%)
  • Community Connection (30%)
  • Creativity (30%)


May 16-30: Submission Period

May 31 to June 7: Judging

June 10 (or sooner): Winners announced

Good luck to all STAR Discovery Educators who apply.
