Welcome back to the Spring Semester. I hope everyone had a great and safe winter break and holiday season.

Spring Semester

We look forward to continued growth with renewal of memberships and new members. Educator dues is $40 and can be paid online by going to https://www.idea-online.org/join-idea/

Regional and State Competitions

IDEA will be hosting the annual regional and state competitions, although they will be virtual this school year as we continue to provide this opportunity in the safest way possible. We hope going “online/virtual” allows all your students to compete and not have to worry about safety, travel, and/or field trips.

Some details are still being worked out and we will let you know as soon as possible when the details are finalized. At this point please update/join membership in IDEA. This will make it possible for us to contact you with updates and for your students can compete in the competitions.

To help us better plan; please fill out this teacher competition survey, if you haven’t already. https://forms.gle/56VBXaojaarVdMqw8

Competition information can be found and will be updated as items are finalized at https://www.idea-online.org/teachers/
