SMART believes that every student is capable of greatness. Often, educators are the inspiration for that greatness. The Give Greatness contest is designed to recognize educators across the world who inspire greatness in their students, their peers, and their community.
SMART is hosting a global educator recognition contest to Celebrate the greatness of our educators. Any educator can nominate his or her colleague for this honor.
Tell everyone you know to nominate an educator who inspires greatness. This contest is truly a win-win.
My Give Greatness Nominee
At 90 years old, she still works at my school every day, teaching kids and directing our Learning Lab at Westwood. She has a legacy of more than 50 years of teaching and helping kids who are challenged to reach their fullest potential.
Not only did Mrs. Adkins help me work on my SAT score when I was in high school, but in second grade, she taught me to love art when she was my teacher. She’s spent a lifetime helping children and is one of the greatest educators I’ve ever known. I have two children with learning differences, and she’s helped them to be successful as well. Hundreds of children who grew up to become doctors, lawyers, and teachers (like me) praise Mrs. Adkins for what she has inspired.
With each nomination, both the nominator and the nominee are entered to win a classroom technology package valued at up to $40,000. Nominator and nominee each win one 7000 series SMART Board, one SMART Document Camera, 30 Chromebooks, SMART training and implementation support, and more.
