Here's an interesting opportunity. It's called "Inspired2Educate," which encourages K-20 education professionals to nominate a teacher, administrator, or staff member who inspired them to start their careers in education.
The Inspired2Educate winners are selected each month and receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their own professional development, as well as $1,000 for their educational institution to use however it sees fit.
Check out the Inspired2Educate website to learn more about the contest. Nominations (short story or video) are accepted now through .
