This year, 255 state finalists will each receive two Samsung tablets and 51 state winners (representing all 50 U.S. states plus Washington, D.C.) will each receive technology packages worth $20,000. From that pool of 51, the public will have an opportunity to choose the 15 national finalists (receiving technology packages worth $30,000*) from February 14 - March 13, 2014. The five national winners will each receive a prize package valued at $146,000 and will be honored at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. A special prize called the Environmental Innovation Award, valued at $50,000, will be chosen by NEEF and also awarded to one of the 51 state winners. Teachers can enter online through October 31, 2013.
