Congratulations to the winners in the CTA “Picture This” contest.
1st Prize: Fire and Ice: A geology tour of Iceland
Annete DeBruyn, Valley Center Teachers Association
My husband and I rode motorcycles 1,600 miles around the perimeter of Iceland, including the Westfjords and the Snaefellnes Peninsula. I made the video as a complement to a nonfiction story to tell students about the power of glaciers, the beauty of icebergs, and how you see deep down into the mid-Atlantic ridge, which is moving apart at 2.5 cm per year.

2nd Prize: See the country, take a road trip.
Larry Volpe, Franklin McKinley Education Association
Photos from my road trip from Spokane, Wash., to St. Louis, Mo., serve as a starting point to pique students’ interest in American history. The trip builds my knowledge base of many aspects of our country and opens up a world of resources.
He wins $150 in school supplies.
3rd Prize: U.S. history tour
Robyn and William Reinhart, United Teachers Los Angeles
We drove 6,600 miles across the United States. We created a mini civil rights tour as a learning adventure for our family and as inspiration for teaching in our respective classes. (He teaches AP Government, AP Economics and U.S. History; she teaches second grade.)
