Distance cannot separate us! Share your images of remote work with HSTA

Submit member photos of teaching, volunteering during pandemic for chance to win $50 gift cards

We know how hard you’ve been working since school campuses were closed due to the coronavirus. Now, we want to share your stories far and wide!

To recognize your many efforts during this pandemic, the Hawaii State Teachers Association is looking for video and photos that illustrate your contributions to our keiki and community. We know COVID-19 has forced you to come up with creative new ways to connect with and educate your students, and we want to celebrate and spotlight your hard work.

Please submit video and/or photos of you or colleagues in action, whether you’re teaching from home, reading in a Google Hangout, sending video messages for your students, or participating in community relief efforts, such as making masks for first responders and distributing items at food drives (while practicing social distancing, of course). If you have photos or videos of your own children going through distance learning, feel free to submit those as well.

Distance Cannot Separate Us

With each submission, please include a sentence or two that explains where you are and what you’re doing. If you have images of different actions or scenarios, please submit them separately. Videos should be no longer than 30 seconds. If photos are too low in quality, we may ask you to resubmit.

By submitting an entry, you are allowing the HSTA to use the image in TV and digital ad campaigns, as well as on its website and social media channels.

Click here to submit your stories, video and/or photos by Thursday, May 7, at 4 p.m.

The HSTA will randomly select 50 members who submit photos or videos to receive $50 Amazon gift cards to be used toward classroom or home office supplies. The more photos and videos you submit, the more entries you receive. Winners will be notified by the end of May.

Please do not submit images of your students, e.g., screenshots of your class meeting virtually, without written consent from each child’s parent or guardian.
