You will be eligible to enter the contest if you are a 2015-16 Foundation Teacher Grant Winner.  You will need to describe your project in a creative way, show how students respond and recap what students learned (including benchmarks addressed) in your 3 minute video. Videos do not need to be professional quality, but should share a successful project and/or lesson that can be replicated.
