Learn How to Register Your Class

 

Step One

Set up Account

Start the education contest registration process by creating an account or logging in. To create an account you will fill out a form that includes: your name, email, phone number and password for your account. You will need this information to manage your education contest classes and entries.

Step Two

Add Class(es)

At this step you should have already created an account for yourself (teacher/leader). This next step will be to register a class. If you will be registering more than one class under your name please make sure to add an identifying class name, for example English 1301.

Step Three

Add Students & Entries

Once your class has been created you can begin adding students. Click the button "Add Student" to begin. Fill out the form for each participating student in your class. You will need each student's parent/guardian contact information as the system will request permission to participate for each student. You will be notified via email when permission has been granted. If you prefer to receive permission in another way (for example, via a permission slip signed by parents), you will be able to mark that permission has already been received for students.

You will be able to upload entries during the active contest period. Once a student is added and parental permission has been received, you will be able to upload an entry for that student. Use the guided pop-up to upload and name a file. One entry per student per contest is allowed, although you can edit an entry prior to the end of the contest.

Note:

Permissions

When you add a student an automated permissions request email will be sent to the parent or guardian. You can override this by checking the box "I have been given permission via another method". You will not be able to upload a file until the student recieves permission.

Step Four

Upload Art/Essays

The final step in the process! Click on the student's name and then upload the essay or artwork. There can only be one submission per student, you can however re-upload the artwork/essay and it will replace the previous entry.
