Nominate Your Squad for MOUSE Squad of the Year 2012!
As the end of the school year comes closer and closer, it's time to take a step back and reflect on everything that's happened so far. We've seen a lot of really awesome things happen at MOUSE during this time; whether it's the cases you put into CaseTracker, the incredible MicroProject submissions, awesome events, the new Wins! system and so much more.
But not everyone across the country knows about all the amazing work that you do in your squads. That's why it's time to announce that it's time for your submissions to our annual MOUSE Squad of the Year contest!
We want to know why your squad is the best squad. All you have to do to win is tell us the story of what makes your MOUSE Squad awesome. Is it the way that you work together as a team? Is it a special project you designed? Maybe your squad closes more cases than anyone else, or maybe you design websites for other teachers at your school. Maybe you've built a super robot that is the mascot of your squad. Whatever it is, we want to know all about it!
CLICK HERE to apply for MOUSE Squad of the year by Friday June 1st. All you have to do is tell us the story of what makes your MOUSE Squad so special.
