Before they go back to school later this month, teachers and administrators have to go camping.
Organized by Nome’s Northwest Campus and funded through a grant, Educator Cultural Camp is for teachers with Nome Public Schools and the Bering Strait School District. Tom and BeeJay Gray hosted this summer’s cultural orientation — which gives teachers university credit to apply to their certifications — during the last week of August at their fish camp on the Niukluk River.

The ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign is currently under way in your state. The campaign recognizes those who are making a positive impact in their communities by exemplifying or advancing college and career readiness in four categories: high school seniors, high schools, community colleges, and employers. ACT developed the Campaign to shine a light on students, institutions, and companies who are doing more with less, overcoming obstacles, and serving as examples to others. Beyond their recognition, the student exemplar in each state will also receive at least a $500 nonrenewable scholarship, payable to the higher education institution of his or her choice.
We are seeking your help in identifying candidates for Alaska exemplars in all four categories. All information and forms relating to the Campaign can be found on our website, www.act.org/readinesscampaign. On the site, you, potential exemplar applicants, and other interested parties can learn About the Campaign. The Applications and Deadlines tab provides links to the exemplar applications for the four categories. Students will also have to print out and physically sign a PDF release form and return a scan of it via email (the preferred method) or a hardcopy via regular mail.
