Speak Up News, December 5, 2017

It's Speak Up America Week! All surveys submitted this week increase participating schools' chances of winning conference registrations, memberships and professional development opportunities from some of our national and regional partners!

We're hosting a webinar this Friday, December 8th, to wrap up Speak Up America week and to offer any school leaders the chance to learn more about Speak Up, get a sneak peek at some of this year's data and to ask any questions you may still have about Speak Up participation (remember: surveys are open through January 19th).

We have announced our annual photo and video challenges, which will remain open until January 12th. Check them out for your chances to win!

We also have a new challenge this year - for high school students. We are looking for a new Speak Up participation badge, and we'd love to have it designed by a student!

Thank you for reading! Feel free to share your thoughts with us on Facebook, Twitter, and our Blog.
