Nominate a teacher for EXPO Extraordinary Educator contest

EXPO, the eponymous makers of everything dry erase, recently launched a contest to recognize an amazing teacher AND give them some much-needed financial support: the EXPO Extraordinary Educator contest!

All that's needed is a 150-word essay about a teacher that deserves to be recognized for their hard work and achievements. Anyone can nominate a teacher--student, educator, parent, or whomever! You do need to get the permission of the educator you're nominating, but you'll still be able to surprise them with your desire to honor them!

The prizes are pretty awesome:
  • 1 Grand Prize: $5000, $1000 worth of EXPO supplies for their school, and a visit to an NBC late night show in New York or L.A.!
  • 12 Semi-Finalists: $500 and $1000 worth of EXPO supplies for their school!
The nomination form, rules and everything else you need to know is on the EXPO Extraordinary Educator website. Good luck!!
