By earning first or second place in the Educators Rising VA State Leadership Conference and Competition, you have secured a spot representing Virginia at the Educators Rising National Conference in Dallas, TX on June 22 – 25, 2019. There are some important items worth sharing at this juncture, should you decide on attending. There is no financial support available from Educators Rising VA. Please work with your teacher leader on funding options.
There are stipulations and deadlines associated with the national conference.
First, in order to compete at Nationals you must be an active-level member of Educators Rising; the fee is $10. The easiest way to remit payment is to go HERE and pay by credit card. You will need to know your Virtual Campus ID in order to complete the Active-Level registration.
Please work with your teacher leader to secure a room at the Hyatt Regency. This must be done first so that you get a discounted rate at the Conference.
Work with your parent/guardian to complete the Personal Conduct form and the Parent/Guardian Consent and Release from Liability form. You will not be able to complete registration without uploading these documents.
Next, register for your event(s) before April 22, 2019. Remember that your event may have artifacts due NOW. For example, if you are competing in Children’s Literature, you will need to submit a Statement of Originality with your true signature (not a computer-generated signature); this is also true for any other event requiring an endorsement.
If you and your teacher leader are attending the Six Flags optional outing, please get your package when you register to save the most money. There are also other add-ons that may be purchased at Registration.
There will be other Virginia schools attending the National Conference. Please let Kathleen Vuono know if you will be going so that students are able to connect with their peers from across the Commonwealth at the Educators Rising National Conference. If you are interested in a Educators Rising VA shirt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the teacher leaders and their students of Virginia, congratulations again on a job well done.
