Voyager Sopris Learning today announced the launch of a social movement. Called “#,” the movement aims to give educators and students a voice, allows them to illustrate what makes them “more,” and to share their untapped potential. As part of the movement’s launch, Voyager Sopris Learning is partnering with WeAreTeachers.
A component of the movement is a contest that gives educators a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize for their classroom, as well as other prizes. Educators will print posters and distribute them to students who will answer the prompt, “I am more than … ”. Participants are then asked to take a photo or video with their poster and upload it to Instagram or Twitter with #IAmMore, tagging @WeAreTeachers, or they can upload it directly to the contest website. Entrants’ photos will become part of the #IAmMore gallery, from which the winner and 25 runners-up will be chosen.
In addition to the grand prize, the runners-up will receive a bundle of classroom goodies, including an Instax camera and film, art supplies, and more. The contest ends Oct. 31 with winners to be announced by Nov. 9.
