Nominate an Inspiring Educator for SMART’s Give Greatness Contest

May 22, 2018

It doesn’t have to be Teacher Appreciation Week to celebrate the inspiring educators in your community! The folks at SMART are hosting a special contest to recognize educators from around the world. They know how educators make a positive impact in the lives of their students. That’s why this contest is titled “Give Greatness.”

The team at SMART wants to spotlight educators across the globe. Particularly those who inspire greatness in their students, their peers, or their community. This contest gives educators the chance to nominate their colleagues to win a grand prize valued at $40,000. For every nomination you submit, both the nominator and the nominee are entered to win this massive classroom technology package.

SMART’s Give Greatness Contest

How does it work? Head over to the landing page for SMART’s Give Greatness Contest. You’ll find a form to place your information. It provides a space to share the story of a colleague who inspires greatness in your school. In 200-500 words you can describe how this teacher makes a difference in their students’ lives and how they inspire you and their fellow educators. Each technology package will include one 7000 series SMART Board, one SMART Document camera, 30 Chromebooks, SMART training and implementation, and more.

You might decide to nominate an educator who made a difference in your life during your first year teaching and who continues to inspire you each day. Or there might be a colleague in your building who is always going the extra mile to support a student in need or give back to the community. If you have a hard time picking just one person in your life who deserves this nomination, you can nominate more than one of your colleagues!

Teachers Who Inspire Greatness

As a first year teacher, I was so lucky to work with colleagues on my grade level team who were inspiring and supportive. They gave their all every day. And they were always happy to answer questions, give advice and help me be my best. It’s hard to imagine what my teaching career would have looked like if it wasn’t for these hardworking, thoughtful and inspiring women!

If you have an educator in your life who inspire greatness in their students, their peers, or their community, here’s a chance to celebrate them! Fill out this form for SMART’s Give Greatness Contest to nominate an inspiring educator.

Here’s a Bonus Idea! First write your 200-500 word nomination. Then, send it to your colleague in an email or card. This special note that will absolutely make their day!
