ey can also win some great prizes including a $15000 scholarship (yes, 3 zeroes). They also have prizes for school districts in the way of technology grants.

This years theme is “What I Wish for the World.”   How appropriate given the dynamics in our country.

Digital Photography Contest

2 Sep

I was reading Kevin Jarrett’s blog Welcome to NCS-Tech where he posted about a digital photography contest through techLEARNING.  The contest is open to students in elementary, middle, and high school.  Students can win a digital camera, Adobe Photoshop Elements and other prizes.  Students can submit a picture “as is” or one that has been edited using photoediting software like Adobe’s Photoshop Elements.

This can be such a creative project with kids.  Team up with your art teacher and have it as an assignment.  I have used digital photography with some of my Tech Team and they absolutely love to get creative.  In fact, this sounds like something we may just try during our first few meetings.
