You work hard to inspire your students to higher achievement. Then, there is that special moment when a student turns the tables and you find yourself inspired, moved—even challenged. This is your opportunity to share that experience with your peers, draw inspiration from their stories, and get great rewards… The winning teacher will have the opportunity to great supplies for their school at the start of the new school year! And, the student who inspired the story may receive a new laptop loaded with great Microsoft software such as Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Student 2008.
Each year, Samsung's Hope for Education holds a contest where students from schools nationwide can write a 100-word essay about how technology benefits and helps education. In 2008, the top winner receives a grand prize of over $200,000 worth of Samsung technology, Microsoft software and cash grants from DIRECTV, as well as the SCHOOL CHOICE® educational television programming package. Entries are open now. Contest will run until August 31, 2008.
