A couple of days ago, I was notified that my entry to the Disney Imagination Campus 50 Teachers Celebration Contest (There's a mouthful!) was accepted and I may be one of the recipients of the award. My entry to the contest was so long ago that I had completely forgotten about it, so this was an unanticipated surprise. I don't know how many teachers must have submitted proposals to be considered, but the contest was widely publicized, so there had to be thousands.
