Hope you're enjoying the winter break. I was wondering if you, your educator contacts or students would be interested in participating in a nationwide Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. We'd really like to get more students involved from Virginia!
You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
