This week the EVSC iTeam will conduct the third annual Digital Heroism Challenge. Open to grades 5-12, this nationally-recognized event asks to students to engage with guest bloggers around Digital Citizenship topics. Students who post a comment on each of the five blog posts will be entered into a drawing for a Toshiba tablet computer. This year we have a terrific panel of bloggers including nationally known speakers and authors, highly successful EVSC alumna and our own Dr. Smith. We invite all students to participate and encourage you to include a small piece of time in your day to engage students in this important discussion. The challenge can be accessed at
