The Teacher Note Challenge is your opportunity to post a Teacher Note showcasing how you used any Instructable in your classroom to win a $500 Amazon gift card.

In fact, we're not giving away just one - but TEN $500 Amazon gift cards!

We know that teachers spend on average $500 out-of-pocket on school supplies every year, and we want to help!

If you've never posted a Teacher Note on an Instructable before, click here for the Instructable on how to get started.

A great Teacher Note includes:
  1. Both a grade and subject classification
  2. A clear explanation of how you used the Instructable project in your classroom
  3. An attached lesson plan (PDF, Word Doc, etc.) detailing how the project was adapted for your class
  4. If possible, a picture showing the project being done in your classroom!
Reminder: If the Teacher Note includes photos or images of other people, or materials owned by third parties, you must obtain the consent of such party (and such party’s parent or legal guardian, if they are under the age of majority) to include such materials in the Teacher Note.

The Teacher Notes Challenge is closed.
