Time Divisions
The year will be divided into several divisions that range from 6-15 weeks. During that time we will try to partner schools who can work together for approximately a 10 week period that will work around school holidays, testings and breaks.

Students should get to know each other and share their work on "Embracing our Differences", and display that work on a Google site assigned by  the GVC.

Each time period is separate. If you are having a great experience with your partner school(s) and want to work with them again during another time period, just request it. 

Don't request this without asking the other school(s) first.

Tools Used by All
Edmodo for communication.
Google Sites for publishing final work. The GVC will provide you with specific links for your team.

GVC Mini Contest Rewards

Besides students' experience in working outside their normal comfort zones, each student will receive a Certificate of Participation. 

Final work will be given either a Gold Star Award Certificate, a Silver Star Award Certificate, or a Bronze Star Award Certificate.

These awards are in the form of printable certificates in a format that allows you to personalize for individual students. There can be multiple awardees in gold, silver and bronze. You may print and frame if you desire; all certificates are sent by way of email.

There will be multiple winners in each category and t eachers may have more than one group of students participating. (Example: students who are only with a teacher on a rotating schedule.  That teacher may  join with each group of students.)
