This Week’s Theme- Competition
Have you ever noticed that the thrill of competition can provide an unusually high level of engagement from your students? We are reminded of this every time we see young people take part in sports and other extracurricular activities. We even see it in the review games that fire students up when nothing else seems to. When the competition is healthy and friendly, we enjoy seeing our students push themselves to achieve.
We’re celebrating the joys of competition this week, and we hope you will send us pics that illustrate how competition brings out the best in you, your colleagues and your students. Show us the preparation, the performance, and the prizes, so that we can enjoy that part of your #EVSCstory with you!
NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to match the theme to share a picture with us. Feel free to share any photo that helps us tell the #EVSCstory at ANY time.
How to Share Your Photos
There are four ways that you can share the photos that you take with us:
- You can share via Instagram – Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #Competition), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
- You can share via Twitter – Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
- You can share via Facebook – Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page :) OR, simply share your image on your own Facebook feed, and include the #EVSCstory hashtag.
- You can share via email – If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through email. Just attach your photos to an email and send them to [email protected]

After each week’s challenge, we will post a link to the archive of the week’s photos here. Follow the link, and enjoy the story that unfolds!
