Best Buy Teach Awards to Schools for Creative Uses of Technology

"Through the Best Buy Teach Award program, Best Buy will present $3.5 million in total awards to more than fifteen hundred schools in the United States. The Best Buy Teach Award program recognizes creative uses of interactive technology in K-12 classrooms. Winning Teach Award programs focus on kids using technology to learn standards-based curriculum rather than on teaching students to use technology or educators using technology that children are not able to use hands-on. The purpose of the Best Buy Teach Award program is to reward schools for the successful interactive programs they have launched using available technology.

K-12 public, private, parochial, magnet, and charter schools in the U.S. using interactive technology in classrooms are eligible to apply. Schools must be located within fifty miles of a Best Buy store to apply. Applications must be completed by educators who have been at the school for a minimum of one full academic year, and the program or project must have been in existence for at least one full school year.

Up to fifteen hundred schools will receive Best Buy Teach Awards of $2,000 each, up to fifty schools will receive $10,000 each, and eight school districts will receive $100,000 each."
