Combining the art of teaching with the science of learning involves fostering relationships with students and mobilizing data to turn those relationships into outcomes. Every day, teachers make that mission a reality by partnering with students to create meaningful and innovative learning experiences.

While children may not be able to go to school, teaching and learning have never stopped, and teachable moments are endless. To celebrate the idea that school can be anywhere, and that learning happens everywhere, we are happy to announce The Second Great Create Contest. ​

Wherever you are, and whatever your school looks like on this particular day, we want you to share it with us! ​

Here’s How the Great Create Art Contest Works:

Beginning June 5, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. EST and running through July 17, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. EST, share what your remote learning experience has been using the medium of your choice. You’ll be entered for a chance to earn money for your classroom, whatever that looks like!

👉 ​One winner will be selected to receive a $500 gift card to use on classroom supplies — an amount we’ve chosen based on the average cost teachers spend out of pocket on school supplies each year.

Here are some quick facts about the contest:

  • Who can enter — Any educator or administrator
  • Type of medium — Create a piece of original art, snap a picture, film a quick video, write a song, or simply share with us your best remote teaching classroom hack! But remember…the submission must not contain music, images, or artwork not created by you!
  • What you should do — Share how remote teaching has inspired you, and be creative! Your submission’s originality, quality, and innovation will count for a third of your score.​
  • What you shouldn’t do — Please do not include students (or other minors), unlicensed third-party intellectual property (logos on clothing, in the background, textbooks, products, trademarks, music, artwork, photographs, or writing created by someone other than the entrant), or any information that violates someone’s privacy.
