Today is the last day to participate in Speak Up!

Speak Up 2014

The last day of Speak Up is here!

This year’s survey period has been amazing with over 520,000 surveys already submitted - a record breaking number! We still have a few hours left, so be sure to take the survey by midnight PT!
To keep that Speak Up momentum going for the last few hours of the survey, check out these exciting opportunities and announcements:
▪ Free BbWorld, iNACOL, NCCE and NETA Conference Registrations: Take the survey before midnight PT for a chance to win one of these free registrations! 
▪ Speak Up America: We are thrilled to announce our Speak Up America winners!
▪ Happy Holidays from the Project Tomorrow team!
▪ Start making plans now for ways to use the Speak Up data. Local data results for all participating schools and districts will be released on February 5, 2015.

If you haven't already please be sure to take the survey before midnight!

There is still time to win a free conference registration!

Speak Up may be ending soon but there are still plenty of opportunities to win free conference registrations! In a special extension of our Speak Up America promotions, our good friends at BlackboardiNACOLNCCE, and NETAhave graciously offered free conference registrations to their respective events! All entries submitted today before midnight are eligible to be entered into a drawing to win a free registration!
Winning is as easy as speaking up! All you need to do is encourage your staff, students, their parents and the local community to take the survey before it closes at midnight. This is a great way to reach out to different audiences that may have a lower participation than you would like, for example to target your K-12 parents, teachers or local community members! The more surveys you get in, the more opportunities you have to win!
