Watch the highlight video below to see the final result!

Congratulations to our 2015 National Champion.  The overwhelming support for ALL 16 of our guest hosts was truly inspiring to watch.  In fact, the runner up set a record for votes received as well.  Our 16 EduAll-Stars definitely brought their “A” games, and there was a rich dialogue on Twitter and Voxer after they each shared their 30 second educational videos.  Thanks to everyone that shared their message and reflected on how we can get better for kids.

I’d also like to thank Oliver Schinkten for all of his time, energy, and passion.  He created the highlight video above and results show, and did a phenomenal job in helping produce all of the March Madness episodes.  Thank you Oliver!

A huge shout out also goes to the TouchCast app for powering the #30SecondTake podcast!  Finally, thanks to everyone that voted and provided feedback on the Google form.  We’ll be sure to bring in some of the guest hosts that were mentioned, and incorporate the guiding questions you suggested.  The wealth of ideas and positive resources made possible via social media is astounding.  Thank you!
