Anyone have 5 minutes and 100 words for our schools? Only 3 weeks remaining for nominations...

More than $1 Million in computers, technology and cash will be awarded to schools this year in the Samsung Four Seasons of Hope Education Nationwide Contest.

Wouldn't it be nice to see a few Bay Area schools share in the more than $1 million in prizes of Samsung products, Microsoft software, Best Buy Gift Cards, and cash grants from DirecTV?

Mount Diablo Unified School District students and parents - are we up to the task?

To enter, or to learn more about the Samsung Four Seasons of Hope Education Contest, visit: www.fourseasonsofhope.com/education.

Anyone in the community - students (K-12), teachers, parents and local residents - can submit a 100-word essay (in English or Spanish) on how the consumer electronics, computer equipment and software awarded through Samsung’s Four Seasons of Hope could benefit their school.

Entry Deadline is December 1, 2009. Do good. Have fun!

  2. Smokey,

    Try! Try! Try! That's what many people think, that their 100 words aren't perfected. It's only a simple contest. No one will know what you write unless you win! And, if you win, everyone will be so happy that you nominated them. Truly.

    Back in July, I nominated a Concord community member for an award. I didn't know what to write, and there were even a few typos in my online submission form. But, ya know what? The person I nominated ended up winning the award! You'll read about this person in Diablo Magazine December 2009 issue. Don't give up. Have courage.
