TNT Prize Winners

During the TnT conference last Saturday, participants were encouraged to tweet the things they learned and to include the #TNTCON21 in their tweet to be eligible to win a prize. Click here to check out some of the top tweets of the 150 posted by participants. The winner of the TnT Twitter contest is Elizabeth Moore from Nelson Elementary!  Her tweet was randomly selected to win an iPad from the tweets that were posted using the conference hashtag. Congratulations, Elizabeth!

Also during the conference, a digital scavenger hunt took place with GooseChase. Participants sought out information about the various vendors and shared things they learned to integrate into their classrooms. Over 120 people participated and 70 finished the hunt successfully. Congratulations to Holly Hayden from Henry Heights Elementary who was randomly selected from the 70 entries that finished the GooseChase to win an iPad!

Winners can pick up the prizes from the Technology Training Center located at 1724 Kirkman Street, Lake Charles anytime between 7:45 AM - 4:00 PM Monday - Friday. Thanks to all who participated in both of the contests!
