My name is Ronda Zelezny-Green and I am the Director of Global Education Outreach for Give Something Back International Foundation (GSBI).


As part of GSBI, we facilitate a global classroom contest called Global Virtual Classroom where classrooms around the world are joined together to create a website that promotes technology in education, global citizenship, and the merits of teamwork. This contest enables participants to earn cash prizes of up to $3000 for each winning classroom team and is funded in part by AT&T. There is no fee required to participate in the Global Virtual Classroom contest.


This initiative is similar to many others currently available through other NGOs. However, the Global Virtual Classroom contest does not only foster teamwork and numerous cross-cultural educational opportunities; it also allows classrooms in need to earn funding for additional educational opportunities during the school year.


I have attached an introductory letter with more information about the Global Virtual Classroom contest. More information can also be found on our website which is located at:www.virtualclassroom.org. If you have further questions about this contest, you may e-mail me at ronda@gsbi.org.


I look forward to having you or anyone you know join our international education contest and I hope that we can have the opportunity to collaborate to achieve the goal of Education for All. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I've participated with my students a number of times with GVC and its earlier incarnation. It has been a positive experience for them and well worth the extra effort involved to make the project a success.
Thank you so much for that positive endorsement. Are you going to participate again this year? Would it be possible for you to send out information on the contest or put me in touch with interested persons? Please let me know.

Je serais ravi d'y participer.C'est dans ce sens que je vous envoie un courriel afin d'avoir de plus amples informations.
