Technology in Education Grant Giveaway - win some great tech and money

Technology is becoming more and more important in schools and the technology is more and more portable. This means that the technology can break, get damaged, stolen or lost. Many schools rely on their own district or city/town insurance to deal with issues with their technology, but these are not always the best ways.

Worth Ave. Group is a company that provides affordable insurance to help individuals, students and schools protect their portable electronics. With the rising number of tablets, e-readers, and laptops in schools, protecting your investment is very important. They work with schools already, including many that have one-to-one laptop programs, to protect these devices and have over 40 years of experience.

Worth Ave. Group knows that technology plays a vital role in preparing students for the future. In an effort to give back to education, Worth Ave. Group has a Technology in Education Grant Giveaway for educators. Educators simply enter and get votes to win. Prizes include: Grand Prize - 16GB iPad 2 for the teacher and 20 iPod Touch 8GB units for use in their classroom. The school will also be given $25,000 to be used for technology in the school. Five second prize teachers will win a 16GB iPad 2 and $1000 for technology in the school. The voter prize is 5 random votes will win a 16GB iPad 2 and so will the persons who referred each one. Up to 5,000 people will win a 1 year subscription to Worth Ave. Group’s laptop tracking software, Worth Track.

These are some very nice prizes and a nice way to recognize a teacher.
