"Capture The Educational Moment" Contest

Would you like to win a new digital camera?

Who wouldn't? Well, here's your chance...

Academic Superstore has asked me to host a contest to get people thinking about education in the home and school. How could I refuse?

This contest is open to ALL public and private teachers, parents, home schoolers and students (18 and older). Entries outside the United States are also welcome.

One winner, chosen at random will receive the Canon PowerShot SD600 and a Timbuk2 Messenger Bag. (Combined value over $350)

No kidding! I'm as excited as you are and I can't even win.

Entering is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Inform and inspire us with a simple post that captures an educational moment. You can use words, photos, or a combination of both to tell your story. The entry doesn't have to be long, but it must be related to education. You could tell us about the day your child learned to read, or the day your lesson actually went according to the plan. Did you do something special for the start of the school year to make it memorable? Or maybe it was a fun class project, field trip, or new curriclum idea? Pass it along. It could even be an educational moment from your own childhood. Don't worry, the entries will not be judged. This is just Academic Superstore's way of promoting education in the home and at school. The winner will be chosen at random by my children.

2. Your entry must also inlcude the sentence,

This is my entry to win a camera in the "Capture the Educational Moment" Contest sponsored by Spunky and Academic Superstore.

Note: Please make sure that Spunky and Academic Superstore are hyperlinked or "clickable". You can also use any previously written post, just repost it so it is dated between today's date and the end of the contest.

3. Leave me a comment or trackback with the link to your post so you can share your moment with the rest of us.

That's it. You're entered.
UPDATE: Double your chance of winning by sharing two stories. Just make sure that you leave a second comment with the second link.

If you don't have a blog you can still enter. Just send an email to 10 friends sharing your educational moment. Make sure you include the same sentence above (#2), along with a link to this blog post and "cc" me in the email (spunkyhomeschool [at] yahoo [dot] com)! That's all you have to do.

Forums and Yahoo groups count too! The same rules apply. Just send me an email linking to the post.

My children will select one winner at random from all valid entries.

Deadline for entry is Friday, September 22, 2006 at Midnight (EST). No late entries will be accepted.

The winner will be announced Monday, September 25, 2006.

So get busy and maybe your next memorable moment will be captured with a new Canon Digital Camera courtesy of Academic Superstore!
