Hard to believe it is Day 5 and our final post is here. First of all, thank you to everyone who has posted! The response has been overwhelming and I thank all of you for sharing your stories and thoughts on these important issues.

Before you read and respond to it please take a moment to do the following:

  1. Make sure that you have responded to all of the other posts if you would like to be entered in the drawing. Postings must be made by Friday evening at midnight in order to count for the drawing.
  2. Make sure that what appears next to your comment is your full name (first and last). If something else appears please sign your last post so we know who you are for the prize drawing!
  3. Check over the other posts you made. Someone may have asked you a question that you could answer and continue the conversation. There is GREAT stuff on every post - go back and take a look.
We will be conducting the prize drawing on Tuesday, February 12th and we will try to notify all winners that day. You can help us out in finding you by including the school you attend on your final post. We will post the winners to the blog once they have been notified!

Thanks again for some fantastic conversation this week. If you have found this experience valuable, or if you want to share something that you learned that is really going to stick with you, share these as comments on this post. We'd love to hear your feedback.

And now.... On to the final challenge....

  2. On behalf of all of our guest bloggers, you are very welcome. It is our hope that everyone who participated learned something and will go out and share that something with more people in their schools.
