This is a great competition that you do not want to miss out on. The closing date has been extended to 6 November 2015. (Last year South Africa selected 16 Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts. Four of them were sent to the Global Forum in Dubai while another four were sent to the E2 Global Educator Exchange in Redmond, Washington.)
