Speak Up America Video Challenge      #VoicesofSpeakUp
Last year, we heard you loud and clear with over 85,000 participants during Speak Up America week and multiple #speakupsnapshots submitted to the 1st annual Speak Up America photo challenge. Now in our second year of Speak Up America, we want to see you and your class "Speak Up" in action! In this new social media video challenge, Project Tomorrow wants to know:
"Why is using digital tools for learning important for your (students') future?"
All you need to do is create a short 15-30 second video answering the question above. Use this opportunity to get your class involved by making this into a class project. Submissions can come in the form of videos, animations (Powtoon), slideshows, voice snippets and more! The more creative the better!
In this challenge there will be THREE grant opportunities:

*         1st Place: $500 classroom or school grant

*         2nd Place: $350 classroom or school grant

*         3rd Place: $150 classroom or school grant

Never has your chance of earning a $500 grant for your classroom been easier. Enter your #VoicesofSpeakUp video into the Speak Up America video challenge today!
