My Fave Teacher Project

The Center on Policy Initiatives is launching a project to involve students in celebrating the value of educators. The MyFaveTeacher project invites students from elementary to high school to make and share short videos about a favorite teacher or other school employee.

Please help us get the word out right away! CPI will begin featuring the videos online later this month and will award prizes (grand prize an iPod Touch!) at CPI's annual Gala on Oct. 16. A San Diego nonprofit, CPI has been a strong advocate for teachers and is honoring all educators as a central theme of the Gala.

To be eligible for the contest, videos must be submitted by Sept. 19. We encourage simple videos made on cell phones or any digital camera -- no longer than 1 minute.

The My Fave Teacher project will continue well beyond this initial contest, as part of CPI’s commitment to highlighting the hard work of teachers and others in our schools. But we have a short timeframe to launch this opening contest! Please consider promoting it as a back-to-school project.

Details and instructions are available at . Send questions to Please spread the word about this exciting opportunity and encourage students to participate!

Thank you.
