Speak Up America 2016 opportunities are Nov 7th to 11th and again December 5th to 9th – great weeks for schools and districts to participate in Speak Up!
Share 15 minutes of your time for the future of education on National Speak Up Day, November 9th!
We’re hosting National Speak Up Day again this year! If you are looking for one day during which to encourage your students, teachers, and parents to take the Speak Up 2016 surveys, this is a great day to do it! National Speak Up Day also the day after Election Day this year; a day when everyone should Speak Up for education issues!
Our annual Speak Up America Photo and Video Challenges are as popular as ever, with five opportunities to win a $200 classroom/school grant!
In order to enter the challenge, take a picture with the Speak Up 2016 participant badge or film a 15-30 second video explaining to the next President why using technology for learning is important. Post your entry Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Youtube (or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) with the hashtag #SpeakUpsnapshot (photo challenge) or #VoicesofSpeakUp (video challenge).
Winners will be selected from entries submitted November 7th to 11th and again from November 12th to December 9th! We will also select one overall photo winner at the end of the survey period in January. Lots of opportunities to show your Speak Up spirit!
