I’ve been asked (notice the passive voice) to advertise this essay contest. Please consider recognizing your favorite teacher, flexing your prose muscles and possibly getting an iPad out of the deal. (This is not a personal plug)
Here’s a part of the email I received:
Hope you are well. I’m contacting you from the Marketing Department at The Gazette and am happy to announce the return of our “My Favorite Teacher” contest and would like to invite Blair High School students to participate.
We encourage students to submit a short essay about their favorite teacher now through Monday, October 7th to be entered to win an Apple iPad. Last year, we had hundreds of submissions and we would love to see nominations come in for a teacher at your school!
I encourage you to visit our official website for more information and rules: http://www.gazette.net/section/teacherContest/
