OK, I hope I am not yet too late for this. I am reposting from Promethean's Contest blog because I don't want to miss anything...

To kick off the National Educational Computing Conference in Washington, D.C., Promethean USA announces its 2009 ActivBlogging Contest.

Visit our booth at NECC, or, if you won’t be making it to NECC, share your experiences in the classroom and/or online for a chance to win a complete ActivClassroom.

Promethean will also “tweetaway” an ActivBoard+2 each day at NECC, with a complete ActivClassroom giveaway on Wednesday, July 1st. Follow us on twitter during the conference for a chance to win.

Here’s how it works:
