​​CONTEST DATES:   Extended; Now thru May 8, 2022


DESCRIPTION:  The Coalition to Increase Teachers of Color and American Indian Teachers in Minnesota will offer up to 26 “scholarship awards” to youth who create the most engaging and influential efforts encouraging civic participation on social media and beyond needed to pass 2022 Increase Teachers of Color Act (ITCA).

Using data, winning influencers will show with data how they raised awareness about the Increase Teachers of Color Act and motivated their peers to act as described in the contest guidelines.
