We invite educators from the United States to showcase their innovative and engaging approach to education. We are looking for exceptional project-based learning activities that challenge students to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills.
Participating educators will have the chance to showcase their work, connect with like-minded educators, and win exciting prizes. We are eager to see the creative and innovative projects that educators submit and to recognize their achievements.
