Show us how you’re having a Smart Summer!
The Prize for this, the FINAL SMART SUMMER CHALLENGE week…Outer Space Week, is from HP. PLUS we have additional prizes from Juice in the City and Pixie!
(I am going to post the Water Fun Round-Up separately early next week)
We’d love for you to share your ideas–you can add a link to a post on your blog or even a photo set on Flickr, photos you’ve uploaded to the Smart Summer Facebook page, or any types of publicly viewable “journal” entry on a social media or community site.
Not a blogger? If you do not have access to posting entries on any public site, you can also leave a comment on this post, sharing the learning opportunities you incorporated into your week with your children.
Your post (or comment) can be something from your archives that speaks to our theme for the week (Water Fun) or it can just be a general post about how you are fitting fun learning into your summer activities. You can find our weekly themes on our calendar of ideas but ANY learning activities, big or small, are welcomed!
Just add your link(s) (as many relevant links as you would like) to a specific post or page (i.e. http://www.naturallyeducational.com/2011/06/fight-the-summer-slide-with-the-smart-summer-challenge/ NOT http://www.naturallyeducational.com) to the link widget below.
Every link you enter in the widget below (or your comment) during the week will also enter you to win our AWESOME prize of the week: an HP Mini!
The HP Mini 210 is a portable (3 lbs.), long-lasting (10 hour battery life) notebook that features Beats Audio and a wireless internet connection, making it an ideal PC for students of all ages.
The HP Mini 210 is available now at HPDirect.com.
The winner of the HP Mini 210 (valued at $300) will be determined at a drawing to be held by the hosts of the Smart Summer Challenge on [date: late July/early August]. This game is sponsored and administered by hosts of the Smart Summer Challenge. Prizes and promotional support are provided and delivered by Hewlett Packard Company headquartered at 3000 Hanover Street, Palo Alto, CA (HP).
In ADDITION to the HP Mini, your entries throughout the ENTIRE challenge will count in our giveaways of a $150 Gift Certificate from Juice in the City to the local toy or book store of your choice AND five downloads of Pixie software (ARV $50 each).
Juice in the City is unique because of our mission to save local! Our sales force is comprised of moms who source deals based on their personal experience in local businesses. We believe in supporting the community while at the same time, empowering moms!
Pixie is exciting creativity software students can use to share ideas, imagination, and understanding through a combination of text, original artwork, voice narration, and images. Whether you work alone or in a group, Pixie is the only canvas you need.
The linky and giveaway closes at 11:59 PM EST on Thursday, August 11. You may enter as many links as you wish and each will count as an entry. Comment entries are limited to one per person, per site (total of three (3) possible comment entries). US Shipping only for prizes, due to sponsor requests, but international friends are still encouraged to play and add their links! Winner will be chosen at random from valid entries.
You retain the rights to all entries but grant us permission to share your links along with a short excerpt and thumbnail image.
We reserve the right to disqualify entries at our sole discretion and change the rules or prizes without notification beyond updating the page.
