YouTube wants to shine a spot light on a group of people who could use a little celebrity treatment -- teachers. Think of it like a virtual "America's Got Talent," but exclusively for educators.
The "YouTube Next Generation EDU Guru," contest was launched as an Internet-wide search for the best web video lessons from first-rate teachers.
Any teacher can participate by submitting a video. Competitors are asked to create videos on all kinds of curriculum and post to YouTube.
YouTube plans to whittle down submissions to ten super talented and engaging educational content creators. YouTube will support finalists with training, promotion and $1,000 worth of production equipment.
