The 2011 PBS Teachers Innovation Awards opens for entries.

From math and science to music and the arts, your inventive thinking continuously fuels, inspires and engages young minds. Whether you teach your students physics with rocket launchers, social studies by re-enacting historical events, or literature by inviting kids to create digital stories, you are innovating and making a difference — and PBS wants to recognize and thank YOU!

PBS and local public television stations invite you to enter the
PBS Teachers Innovation Awards!

The top twelve winners, one from each of 12 subject/grade groupings, will participate in a week long “Innovation Immersion Experience” at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan from July 31-August 5, 2011, plus receive a SMART Slate™ wireless slate, and a free PBS TeacherLine professional development course.

Deadline for Entries: April 14, 2011
