For Educators by Educators

Is your company trying to reach the K-12 education market? Would you like to reach as many as 200 technology-oriented teachers, administrators and media specialists? Be a part of the 32nd Annual Great Computer Challenge!

Over 200 educators from local schools will be in attendance sponsoring their teams of students. Over 400 students will be at each competition along with many parents and loved ones. Several workshops will be held for teachers and parents while the kids are competing and then awards will be presented to the winning teams.

If your company would like have a booth or make a presentation at the Great Computer Challenge, please complete and return the Vendor Participation Form. We will send you confirmation materials, including directions and set-up times, upon receipt of your completed participation form.

If you would like to make a 55-60 minute presentation, please complete and return the Presenter Information Form. A vendor table must be purchased to be eligible to make a presentation and the presentation must not be a sales pitch. This does not guarantee proposal selection.

A favorite part of past events has been door prize drawings. Attendees are required to deposit their door prize tickets in the vendor display area, thereby ensuring additional traffic throughout the day. Donations from our vendors play an important role in this aspect of the Great Computer Challenge. Hardware, software and accessory items all make excellent door prizes.

We are looking forward to the 32nd Annual Great Computer Challenge and hope that your company will be a part of it! To have your company’s name listed in the brochure, please complete your forms and return them by March 13, 2017 for the Senior (grades 6-12) Competition or April 24, 2017 for the Junior (grades K-5) Competition.
