Hi Lucas!

Hope you had a nice winter break. I was wondering if you or your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to.

You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
