    How to Enter


    To enter the Contest, prepare the following two files to attach to the entry email you will send:
    1.   500- to 1000-word document in Microsoft Word format describing your teaching technique and how it has worked for you.
    2.   URL to a brief, five to eight-minute video that you’ve posted to YouTube describing your technique—and, if possible, show it in action.

    In both the document and the video, outline your teaching technique. Include brief discussion on the following topics:

    • What’s the procedure?
    • What materials, if any, are required?
    • How easy would it be for another instructor at another school to implement it?
    • What knowledge, skills or insights do you hope to introduce or reinforce with this technique? 
    For information on uploading a YouTube video, review this help page.
