During our September 24th Hack the Classroom event, we showcased Sway as a fun and easy tool for sharing content. To carry the momentum forward, we are running a competition to see who can develop the best lesson that includes the use of Sway as a creative method for delivering content to students. The winners will be announced live on June 27 during our live Hack the Classroom online event.

The winners of the competition will:
- Be featured on the Microsoft Educator Community
- Have their Sway featured on the “My Sways” page on Sway.com
How to participate

Be sure to mark the age range of your lesson as we will be selecting winners from three categories: Pre K – 7, 8 – 13 and 14 and up. Use the rubric provided to ensure that your lesson has the greatest chance of being selected as a winner.
