I am within hours of officially starting the contest. No, it is not being deliberately done to keep you at bay. There are some technical things I must put in place. One primary guideline still stands; you must be a practicing teacher. Your email address has to have an .edu at the end, or some similar to k12.il.us. It has to be a bonafide school email. You know, the “Real McCoy.”
So that you get the full benefit of your allotted time, here are two hints:
- You should have a free YouTube account
- This entry will be easier to submit if you have a smartphone.
God willing and the creek don’t rise, the official contest time should begin at 8:00 p.m. CST. I am also taking into consideration various time zones to equalize entry submissions.
I hope to connect with you in just a matter of hours…until then, get your creative juices flowing! We’re in for some fun!
