Five Weeks Until SchoolE Nominations End - Where are we now?
With just five weeks left until the SchoolE Awards end, nominations are pouring in and the race is getting tight! Between 50 and 100+ nominations come in each day and the numbers are growing as we near closer to the finish line.
As of today, the top 10 school districts in terms of nominations are as follows:

The SchoolE Awards website has received over 8,000 unique visitors and 17,000 page views with hits coming from all 50 states. Not only has the site been actively viewed in the U.S., it has also been getting international attention with more than 43 countries having viewed the SchoolE Awards site. A few other things to note:
- The majority of the nominations are coming in through e-mail. --> Let me just say, that districts should encourage nominating through Facebook and Twitter to significantly improve their odds - and increase their nominations!
- Votes from almost all 50 states
- We have much more than doubled the number of total nominations we received last year
- The majority of nominations are coming in from teachers (Why not get more students and the community more involved?)
The nominations phase for the SchoolE Awards ends March 11, 2011—so spread the word and keep up the good work! Best of luck to all participating districts!
