Recognizing students, educators using social media to make an impact
The Content Generation Awards celebrate students and educators using social media channels to tell important stories about their schools and communities in creative, collaborative, and meaningful ways.
Class Intercom, a Quill and Scroll charter, created the awards to recognize creativity, critical thinking, communication, storytelling, and collaboration. Over a two-week nomination period, the public is invited to submit nominations for students and educations at www.classintercom.com. Finalists are then selected for a public voting period, after which the winners will be announced. Two students and two educators will be selected (one winner and one runner up in each category).
Nominations are open to students and educators at schools of all types, including K-12, secondary, post-secondary, public, private, religious, and parochial schools.

About the Q&S/Class Intercom partnership
Last year, the Quill and Scroll Board of Trustees changed its bylaws to allow organizations that monitor and publish student media to earn charters and recognize students whose own school may not have a robust journalism program. Local newspapers, international non-governmental organizations and nonprofits may be eligible to nominate students for Quill and Scroll membership if they apply for a charter.
This is Class Intercom’s mission: “To provide schools with both the tools and support services to allow for secure and engaging social media communications and connections. Our goal is to provide schools solutions to engage students in social media creation, create curriculum and open communication.”
