Win 15 Surface Pro 3’s computers for your school!
Build a lesson in PowerPoint 2013, use Office Mix to spice it up, and share it on OfficeMix.com before September 28th. We’re looking for mixes across Arts, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, and you can build just about any K-12 lesson you want within those categories (just make sure it’s shorter than 10 minutes). We’ll select 15 finalists based on how creative they are, how originally they use Office Mix, the overall quality of the mix, and the mix’s applicability to learning. We’ll then open them up to voting by the community starting October 13th. The Grand Prize winner will win 15 Surface Pro 3 devices to donate to a K-12 school, and five lucky First Prize winners will each win one Surface Pro 3 to donate. All the prizes go to the schools designated by the winners.
Now here’s the good part: Educators can enter up to five new mixes per day, and each entry is another chance to win. The contest is open to nearly every adult in the U.S.—teachers, students aged 18 or higher, parents, family, and friends. (See here for the official rules and eligibility requirements.)
They can enter directly from the OfficeMix.com portal, so go there OfficeMix.com for more details, inspiration, and to get started.
By the way, here are just some examples of the great mixes we’ve seen so far.
