We Have a Winner!

Posted by on

Congratulations to David Barnaba, the winner of our "Back to School" Bulletin Board Contest!  Mr. Barnaba's bulletin board, entitled Composers, received 3372 votes and won our $250 grand prize!  Mr. Barnaba is a 12th-year, K-6th music teacher in Cabarras County, North Carolina and his whole school rallied behind him in order to come from behind on the last day of voting! Great job!

A very close second place went to Leigh Tinney, a well-loved elementary school teacher for her terrific entry Get Ready for a Colorful Year!  Every teacher that submitted an entry will receive a Starbucks gift card.

All of us here at were so excited to see all the creative entries and to have passionate school participation in the voting!  It was truly inspiring to see the way these teachers put in the extra effort to challenge and motivate kids to learn!  Thanks to everyone who submitted and voted for making this such a fun contest.  Make sure you take time to check out all the entries!

Hi Kayla,

Not a problem at all. We're glad you were able to feature it on your site. If we ever run this contest again in the future, I'll be sure to contact you beforehand!

Thanks for taking the time to notify us!

Thanks so very much - both for allowing us to share your content and for any future notifications! Our teacher readers are always looking for places to display their hard work {and win free stuff of course!}. Next time, I'll be sure to post specifically about the contest for better promotion!
