What about entering the Star Teachers competition for South Africa?

I was wondering if any of you would like to enter the Star Teacher competition for South Africa?  You have to to enter a community-based project. I entered this competition in 2009 with my Bonding through Blogging project with the elderly and received a fourth place. 1st – 3rd place were flown to the Awards ceremony in Johannesburg. In 4th place I received R1000, a beautiful Parker Pen set and a gorgeous certificate which I still have displayed in my home!

Here are the details from an email I received. There are only two days left – so please hurry! (31st August is the closing date!) https://www.ed.org.za/index.php/teachers?layout=blog
