After placing in the state Educators Rising competitions (sponsored by Missouri NEA) in March 2022, high-school students ventured to Washington, D.C. to compete nationally. This summer, at the Educators Rising Conference, two Missouri students won scholarships, three earned high honors, ten placed in the top ten within their competition category, and 23 joined the ranks of the National Educators Rising Honor Society.
The 2023 Educators Rising National Conference is scheduled to take place June 29-July 2, 2023, in Orlando, Florida, at the Renaissance Orlando at Seaworld. Find out more at https://educatorsrising.org/conference-competitions/.
Students must first place among the top ten in the state competition to compete at the national level. Attend the EdRising-Missouri Fall Conference to get your questions answered, attend sessions, listen to a guest speaker, and start preparing your entries. Register at www.mnea.org/edrising_fall22.
