We’re excited to announce that we’re launching another photo contest! This time we’re giving away $1,000 to one lucky teacher who can show us why technology is so important in his/her classroom!

 VideoBlocks Hosts Education Contest

To enter our education photo contest, all you have to do is submit a photo of your class that illustrates how technology, video and media enhance the learning environment. The photo can be a demonstration of students using technology in the classroom, or a picture showing how adding technology to your classroom could improve the student’ education opportunities. You’ll also be asked to explain what you plan on doing with the cash prize, as well as how you would use a year-long subscription to VideoBlocks.com

The contest is open to all grades, K-12. A teacher or administrator must be the one to submit the entry in order to meet the eligibility requirements. (Sorry, parents! Make sure to pass this along to your child’s teacher so they can enter!)

All submissions must be received by February 29, 2012. At that point, entries will be published online for a public vote. The top 20 entries with the highest votes will become finalists and will be presented to a panel of judges from VideoBlocks.com. A final winner will be chosen and announced on March 15, 2012.

So make sure you pass this along to your child’s teacher, any friends that are teachers, or any random teachers you meet in the grocery store line. We want to see technology prevelant in all classrooms, and this is a great way to make that happen in your own community!

You can also enter the contest through VideoBlocks’ Facebook page.

Good luck!
