National Schools Challenge – Planet 2010

Greetings all

I have just received this email below saying that home educators can enter this competition:

The National Schools Challenge is part of the Planet 2010 event and school students can compete in online challenges using a wide range of technologies including computers, online design software, YouTube, digital cameras and phones.

Blessings  Barbara

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for your email.

Yes, we will allow home schooled students to enter the National Schools Challenge.  The only competition where this is an issue is the ‘Story’ Challenge – as the prizes are ‘telescopes for your school’.  If the winner is a homeschooled student then they will need to nominate a school to gift the telescope to.  (From Barbara – perhaps we could try nominating a support group in this competition.)

When registering, please specify ‘home schooled’ as your School Name.  If you wish to enter the Photography Challenge, it is ok for students to take photos around the home (or their learning environment).

We hope you enjoy the competitions!

Regards
