We recently hosted an art contest, where we asked educators to answer the question: what does your remote learning environment look like? While many 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 asked educators of all kinds to illustrate their unique approaches to remote learning. To answer this question, educators could submit a piece of artwork in any medium. The grand prize — a $500 gift card to spend on school supplies!

We were blown away by the talent, creativity, and enthusiasm in the submissions we received. It was difficult to choose only one winner and only a few finalists. But we’re thrilled with the final outcome! See below for the winning submission and the five finalist submissions. Congratulations, everyone!

The Winner:

Janine Campbell, Art Teacher at Byron Center Middle School, Byron Center, Michigan

By Julie Zagaya, 1st Grade Teacher at Young Audiences School, Lousiana

Jim Addison, 4th Grade ELA Teacher/ Grades 3–5 Instructional Leader at Winskill Elementary School, Wisconsin
