Thumbs Up

Enter our Tweets of the Week contest

Hey students, teachers and schools!

We want you to give props to your favorite teacher through our new Tweets of the Week contest.

Simply tweet out who you’re nominating and why, using #TarHeelTeacher. We’ll pick the top tweets and send those winners an NIE prize pack.

The News & Observer’s News in Education (NIE) program and Thumbs Up contest starts today, and each week will have a new tweet topic.

In Monday’s Thumbs Up, we’ll run some of our favorite tweets and announce the next week’s hashtag.

The contest is open to elementary, middle and high schools, teachers and students. Tweet deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday.

Follow us @NIEnando and don’t forget to include the featured hashtag to enter.
