Prezi's "Zoom back to school" contest

As a huge fan of the Prezi presentational experience, I was excited to see this contest announcement (see previous blog entries: Prezi: the PowerPoint alternative, So you want to learn Prezi, and Prezi retuns). After several months of working with Prezi and now teaching it regularly in the classroom, I find it is a great tool for students AND educators. 

 The goodies: 
-1 winner will win a new iPad, with the Prezi iPad viewer included.
-3 winners will win FREE 1-year Prezi Pro licenses. (If winner already has a Pro license, winner will receive an additional 12 months on the Pro license.)
-Winners will be featured on landing page (1 of 4 featured prezis)

Prezi “Zoom Back to School” Contest

In honor of school getting back in session this year, Prezi has put out the call to thinkers everywhere: Create a Prezi teaching us about what are you excited to study this year, and how you are using Prezi to facilitate the open exchange of ideas in your classroom.
One Grand Prize Winner will win a new iPad with the Prezi Viewer, so they can pinch and zoom their Prezis in the classroom. Three runner-ups will also win 1 year Prezi-pro licenses.
