Third ​Annual

Enter to win $500 for Teaching and Classroom Supplies

As the 2020-21 school year comes to a close, it is time to reflect, honor, and celebrate a full year of teaching during a global pandemic.

And what has that year looked like for teachers? For many, it was teaching multiplication from a makeshift desk in a living room. Or learning how to use new technology and teach remotely, all at the same time. It may have been late-night emails to parents to make sure each student is coping. It was Zoom breakout sessions, Bitmoji classrooms, TikTok dances, and Google slides. Or saying "I think you are on mute" far too many times each day. It was feeling isolated, frustrated, and disconnected, but each and every day, getting up to change the world.

Because of you – teachers, administrators, parents, and caretakers – learning continued even when the world stood still. Even when it felt impossible. To celebrate that unwavering tenacity and commitment to students, we are thrilled to announce the third annual Great Create Contest.
