Voting Ends Today!
After an incredible effort by both the finalists and our staff, several different editorials and great news coverage, and a truly inspiring upswell of community engagement, today is the last day of voting for the iEducate Delaware finalists. The website has seen an incredible amount of traffic, and Facebook and Twitter have been abuzz with excitement and enthusiasm.
If you missed it, here are links to some of the coverage:
· Our blog
· Town Square Delaware (twice)
· Cape Gazette twice
· The News Journal (twice)
It has been a truly inspiring time learning about these stories, and there’s still time to participate! Voting will officially close tonight at midnight, which leaves enough time for you to vote up to three more times. And don’t forget, you can join the conversation on Twitter by tweeting your support for a finalist and even by making a pledge and sharing how you will “iEducate” Delaware students this school year.
We will announce the honorees in the coming weeks, and recognize them at the Vision 2015 Fall Conference, during which you’ll be able to read details on how they’re going to use the $2,000 grant awards. There will be lots to talk about at the conference, where district leaders, principals, teachers, and others will share their work related to Common Core implementation, parent engagement, data use, personalized learning, and other critical topics. Mark your calendars.
So what are you waiting for? Go vote, and we’ll see you at the conference!
