Announcing a Great Prize for the Blog Carnival!

As many of you know, I will be doing a blog carnival on 3.31.09. This weekend my mom and I started to think about the prize thatI will be giving away. This morning, Woot was running a really good deal on the Flip Video Camera. I have enough money saved up in bottle returns from this winter to pay for this camera, and so my mom and dad said I could get it and I WILL BE GIVING THIS CAMERA AWAY TO ONE LUCKY PERSON OR CLASSROOM WHO BLOGS TO SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE WORD ON MARCH 31ST!!!!

Here are the rules for the carnival:

  • To be entered you MUST have at least one blog POST that focuses ending the use of the r-word.
  • Your post MUST be on how the r-word makes you feel, how you will help Spread the Word to End the Word, or have to do with the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign.
  • Your post MUST be entered on 3.31.09.
  • Once your post is up, please leave a comment here so that I know you are entered. It would be great if you could leave your name or the name of your class/school and a link to the post. I will create a new post on my blog that day with a list of all of the bloggers who have spread the word!
  • Everyone who posts and leaves their link here will be entered into a random drawing to win the Flip Video Camera! I will draw the name of the winner on April 1st!

If you have any questions, just let me know! Please spread the word about the carnival so lots of people will spread the word to end the word!

  7. Hello! I have added the information and blogged about this on my classroom blog. You can reach it at: http://www.buncombe.k12.nc.us/100620112884626237/Blog/browse.asp?A=398&BMDRN=2000&BCOB=0&C=69271

    Sorry it is so long, the tiny URL won’t work because it is my school blog. We talked about this in class today and I hope to get a lot of dialogue going. Keep up the great work. If I have time tonight I will blog on my personal blog as well.

    Much peace,
