As the 2009-2010 academic year nears the half-way point, Bright House Networks is urging all teachers in central Indiana to shoot for the stars by entering the 2010 Bright House Networks National Star Teacher Awards program.
For more than 20 years, the program has recognized the most innovative teachers throughout the country who use valuable resources and cable programming available through Cable in the Classroom to educate their students.
In light of today’s economic climate, Bright House Networks has increased the prize money by guaranteeing each winning teacher no less than $1,000 in prize money. In year’s past, winning teachers would be guaranteed at least a $500 cash prize. For 2010, every winning teacher will receive at least $1,000 and up to $3,000 if their project is selected as a winner.
In addition to the $1,000 or more prize, teachers also can register for a special gift online. Winning teachers and/or teams will be invited to attend a special Education Celebration and will receive a Tiffany Crystal Star.
“We are looking forward to this year’s competition and honoring our best and brightest teachers throughout our community,” said Bright House Networks Indiana President Buz Nesbit. “Bright House Networks is proud of its partnership with Cable in the Classroom and invites all educators to participate in this great competition.”
Entries must be received no later than March 1, 2010. All materials submitted cannot be returned so teachers should make a copy of their entries before submitting them.
A maximum of 10 projects will be selected as winning entries in this year’s contest. Teachers may enter projects as individuals or as teams of up to three. To be eligible to enter projects for consideration in the Bright House Networks National Star Teacher Awards, teachers must be in a state accredited public or private school (K-12) located within a Bright House Networks service area. Classroom projects should have occurred between September 2009 and February 2010.
