Teachers Pay Teachers – 27830 Free Educational Downloads « St Aiden's Homeschool Blog

From Paul Edelman, founder of TPT

This is our 100th 10 Free Downloads newsletter which means we’ve highlighted 1,000 great free downloads to help make your teaching life easier every week. To celebrate, I came up with a contest with $1,000 in prizes plus a $1,000 bonus for your favorite plus another $1,000 for our favorite. I guess that makes it $3,000 total!
The contest is to redesign our ‘It’s About Time’ banner, the one you see where we used to show ads. Here it is:
Your job is to make it even better. You can keep the same copy or create your own while maintaining the same or similar idea. The only acceptable size is 300×250 and you can post up to 3. Voting will end next Saturday, April 28th at Midnight PST. Submissions and voting happen on our Facebook Fan Page starting today. Here’s how:

The 10 banners who get the most LIKES on our Fan Page win $100 each and the one who gets the most LIKES wins a $1,000 bonus. We’ll then choose our favorite to place on the site and award that creator $1,000. We’ll reach out to all winners via FB to organize prize payouts. Spread the word on your blogs and have fun!

Top SA Sports Energy Drink 32Gi launches New Ad with Two Oceans Marathon Podium Finisher Collen Makaza « Donnette E Davis ~ My Other Blog

Top SA Sports ENergy Drink 32Gi launches New Ad with Two Oceans Marathon Podium Finisher Collen Makaza « Donnette E Davis ~ My Other Blog

Collen Makaza, 2010 IAU World 50KM champ, and Podium Finished at 2012 Two Oceans Marathon is fueled by Leading Brand, 32Gi

Meet Collen Makaza

Collen returned after dealing with an injury sustained during Soweto Marathon in November 2010, fitter, faster and more determined than ever to take gold!   His friend and former teammate Stephen Muzhingi, who he paced during 2009 enabling Stephen to take the Comrades Gold, and Collen battled it out to the bitter end, when finally only about 30 seconds separated 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions...

Congratulations Makaza on your riveting performance...

When Words are unnecessary... Collen Makaza with his manager Craig Fry after running a grueling race in torrential downpours in Cape Town, and achieving a top class 3rd position after struggling with injury for a year and a half...

Later this year Collen's going to grab back his World 50km Champion title that he was unable to defend in 2011 due to injury!

Watch this space... this is one world class athlete and he's leaving no stones unturned!

Media Release - Husqvarna : Top Contenders at Two Oceans Marathon, South Africa


Media Release                                                                                      06 April 2012

Top International Contenders at Two Oceans Marathon

The ‘who's who’ in ultra running will be lining up in a few short hours, to compete in The Two Oceans Marathon, in what has become somewhat of an annual ‘curtain raiser’ to the Comrades Marathon. This is the race where many will test their readiness to compete in the Ultimate Human Race on 02 June 2012.

Husqvarna South Africa has put their weight behind some of the top contenders this year in a partnership with Craig Fry, international athlete manager, and is powering contenders such as John Birgen, Collen Makaza and Munyaradzi Jari.

John Birgen, Kenya, is the second fastest marathon runner on paper in the field. Birgen has run 2H09 on three occasions, and has won races across Europe and is an experienced racer. He has spent the past seven months in South Africa, training specifically for the 56km run around the mountain. He has the potential to smash records if the conditions are right.

Collen Makaza of Zimbabwe is the 2010 IAU 50km World Champion. Collen has a best finish at Two Oceans of 11th in 2010, but went on to capture the World Title a few months later. He has a PB marathon of 2H14, and holds the record for the fastest time to Half Way at Comrades Marathon, which he achieved in 2009. Due to an injury he sustained at the 2011 Two Oceans race, Collen had a seven-month resting period, but is back to his best form and is expected to perform well.

Munyaradzi Jari, affectionately known as Munya or Munya95, is a definite force to be reckoned with at the half marathon come Saturday morning. A seasoned campaigner at only 22 years old, he not only has breath-taking stamina from running Ultra races and is coming off running Hong Kong marathon earlier this year, he has the lightning speed to go with it. His last two races at 21km - the Pietermaritzburg half, 1st (67:18) and Paulpietersburg 4th (63:49) – have ensured that he is peaking at the right time and one can expect him to run sub 63 this Saturday.

You can follow the athletes’ progress via Twitter @craigsathletes and @Husqvarna_ZA @donnette for live updates and commentary all week and race day.
