Are you a classroom teacher in grades K-12 with a great lesson you would like to share with educators statewide? Awards range from $200 for single educator to $1,000 for team of 2-4!
In celebration of Digital Learning Day in Idaho and throughout the remainder of the 2012-2013 school year (until funds are expended), Idaho Educators will be eligible to receive one of two types of recognition awards for exemplary 21st Century Classroom Lesson/Unit Plans submitted into Schoolnet.

Who is Eligible? - K-12 Teachers Employed by Idaho Public and Charter Schools in All Content Areas (including Special Educators)

Award Funds for Classroom Materials - The SDE is prohibited from awarding cash or gift cards so awards will be distributed as funds for classroom materials. The distribution of the award will go to the school district. Teachers are free to purchase any classroom supplies up to the amount of the award. There are no restrictions on the types of materials or classroom supplies purchased by the classroom teacher.
