Contest: I’m here for the learning revolution (due May 1)

If you’ve been reading Speed of Creativity lately, you probably noticed Wesley Fryer’s nifty phrase: I’m here for the learning revolution.



I AM here for the learning revolution! Are you?


I suggested to Wesley that we have a button design contest because I love the idea of all of us wearing these at NECC. He agreed, so this is the official announcement that he and I are hereby sponsoring a contest!


  1. Design a button for people to wear at NECC (and beyond) that says I am here for the learning revolution  [no period at the end]
  2. n

  3. You can (and should) use any of these buttons at Absorbent Printing as design guides.
  4. n

  5. You may enter more than one design.
  6. n

  7. Your design must be made available under a Creative Commons attribution-noncommercial-share alike 3.0 unported license and must be in a file format and resolution suitable for printing.
  8. n

  9. Prizes include everlasting fame, a CASTLE mug, a picture of a monster drawn by my 4-year-old, and a copy of Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky. If the design is suitable for a t-shirt, CASTLEwill buy one of those for the winner too. Plus I think Wesley also might have some stuff for the winner.
  10. n

  11. The deadline for submission is May 1. E-mail me your file or a link to the file.
  12. n

  13. If you have any questions, contact me.


CASTLE will pay for prizes and the buttons. Anyone who attends the Edubloggercon 2008 & Classroom 2.0 ‘LIVE’ session at NECC gets a free button. I’ll pass out the rest during NECC until they’re gone.


So I’ll be sporting at least two buttons at NECC: this one and another nifty one that says I read blocked blogs (designed by Stephanie, inspired by Bud). Awesome.


Happy designing!


Update:See the winning entry!
