Enter Our 2014 Top 10 Binder Contest!

“How are you using LiveBinders as ePortfolios?”

That’s the theme for our 2014 Top 10 LiveBinders contest. You can nominate binders that you created and are using at your school or learning environment as well as binders that were created by others. These binders can be recent ones you started using just this year or older ones that you’ve been using for several years. Educators, students, administrators, and trainers are invited to enter their binders.

For the nomination, you are required to submit the binder link and a summary explaining how you are using the binder differently than you would a paper 3-ring binder, how it has helped your teaching or learning, and how you plan to change or use the binder for next year.

A collection of 25 binders will be selected by a panel of judges. Those 25 binders will then be entered in the final round of voting by the public.

Prizes for the selected 25 binders include:

  • A Top 10 Nominee badge for your website
  • A feature of your binder and your summary in an ebook that LiveBinders will publish by the Fall of 2014
  • A 10% off coupon for school supplies by BizSupplies.com, one of our valued sponsors of the contest

Awards for the Top 10 Winners include:

  • All of the prizes awarded to the selected 25 finalists above
  • A Top 10 label on your binder
  • Placement of your binder on our Top 10 shelf and Featured Binders page
  • A LiveBinders Spotlight Bookmark featuring your binder
  • A $50 Amazon gift certificate
  • A Zebra stylus pen by BizSupplies.com

And the winners are…

First, congratulations to all of the 29 LiveBinder entries – out of over 100,000 binders, your binders were selected as a Top 10 Contender and that’s worth mentioning!  And to our Top 10 Favorite LiveBinder winners – double Congratulations are in order!!

For Barbara and I, it was so much fun to see the good sportsmanship carried out on twitter as all of you tried to engage people to participate.  We both had a good laugh when @mfisher1000 decided to take on the 3rd graders in @mthornton’s class. Who thought it would get that heated?

I think the main point to take a way from all of this is how useful your binders have been to people.  In this day and age where the internet is getting overwhelmingly bombarded with information – its nice to have people you trust and respect sort through content in a meaningful way.  We love the polished way in which these binders were carefully created. 

To honor all of the 2011 Top 10 binders, we’ve provided badges for your home pages and mini-badges that will appear next to your binder icons on your shelves and will also appear within your binders. We will email you your website badges shortly and your mini-badges should start showing up on your shelves and binders immediately.  Below are the Top 10 Favorite Binders – Congratulations everyone!
