As Moms, we all know how important our child's teachers are to their growth and development. That's why we couldn't wait to share with you the opportunity to honor outstanding educators! In celebration of National Teacher Appreciation week, May 2 - 6, Rayovac is recognizing inspirational teachers by hosting the Teachers Bring Science to Life Contest.
Students, parents, administrators and teachers have the opportunity to nominate an amazing K-6 educator for a chance to win one of three all-expense paid trips to attend Steve Spangler's Science in the Rockies workshop - an intensive three-day, hands-on science training held in Denver, Colorado. The experience offers creative science integration strategies for teachers who are focused on making science more meaningful and fun for their students.
Rayovac will accept teacher nominations at www.rayovac.com/science beginning on Monday, May 2, 2011 until 11:59 p.m. (CST) on May 16, 2011. Those that would like to recognize an extraordinary teacher can complete the online entry form and submit an essay up to 300 words explaining how the teacher inspires students and brings learning to life. Teachers can even nominate themselves for this unique, hands-on professional development workshop where they'll learn great classroom techniques and engaging experiments sure to inspire and captivate their students. From the submissions, three inspirational teachers will be selected by Rayovac to win an all-expense paid trip to attend Science in the Rockies 2011. Additionally, the individuals with the winning essays nominating the three winning teachers will also receive one of three $100 gift cards from a major retailer. More information, the official contest rules and the entry form can be found at www.rayovac.com/science.

"Through the Teachers Bring Science to Life Contest, we hope to recognize a few of the many outstanding teachers as well as give them an amazing science experience they can bring back and share with their students."
