Family and Consumer Science Innovative Teacher Contest

Entries must be emailed to and include a write up about yourself answering the questions below as well as a minimum of two pictures of either you or your student’s projects. You may not submit pictures of students since the pictures would require students’ consent to publish on the internet.  Video entries are encouraged and can be submitted by first uploading them to You Tube then sending a link to your video in an email.
