During American Education Week, Nov. 18-22, the National Education Association - Alaska kicked off a statewide contest open to K-12 students. The purpose of the contest is for students to share how public education has positively impacted their lives. Students can submit a poster, photograph or video for consideration by Dec. 23. NEA-Alaska will be awarding three Barnes & Noble Nooks.
“Today’s public schools are dynamic places of learning. NEA-Alaska’s statewide student contest is an opportunity to learn from students what inspires and motivates them,” said NEA-Alaska President Ron Fuhrer. “As educators, community members and policymakers discuss the future of public education in Alaska, this contest will provide insight into what our students view as important.”
NEA-Alaska is a diverse organization of teachers, certified staff, education support professionals, retired members and student teachers. With almost 13,000 members, NEA-Alaska is a democratic organization that exists to be an advocate for an excellent public education for each child in Alaska and to advance the interests of public school employees.
