Thank you to everyone that participated in our contest to win one free registration and up to four nights of housing at ISTE 2015. The contest is now closed. This year’s entries were so creative we couldn’t choose just one — so we chose five!
Take a look at the creative entries entered by the many passionate educators looking to join us in Philadelphia.
