An official entry is a qualifying submission that has been selected by Promethean judges, selected at Promethean’s sole discretion, and is then added to the voting section of the Classroom Story website. Promethean will not post an official entry to the voting section until Promethean contacts the entrant via e-mail, which will include the terms and conditions of the Classroom Story Program, and the entrant confirms acceptance of these Official Rules via reply email.  Each submission shall be evaluated by Promethean judges based upon the following equally weighted criteria: the creativity, energy, or enthusiasm exhibited in the video to describe the Classroom story or experience; the uniqueness of the Classroom story or experience; and the potential benefit to other educators of the Classroom story or experience.

 

Classroom Story Winners will be contacted within thirty (30) days of each program closing date by email (the “Notification Email”) sent by Sponsor to the email address provided by the Eligible Entrant during the entry submission process.

 

Up to 5 Promethean ActivPanels will be provided in each period, one for each official entrant that receives the most votes on the Classroom Story website.
