Pleeeeeez vote for me?

As you've no doubt heard, it's scholarship time over at DFA for Netroots Nation. 30 people will be chosen to receive scholarships to NN to mix, mingle, and learn to be better activists.

This year, since NN is (relatively) close to my home, I have decided to apply. I have made this choice because I have become more involved in on line education activism as a member of the Badass Teacher Association. I'm hoping that what I learn at Netroots Nation can help us as educators (All 44,000+ of us and growing) take back education from the corporatists and the privatizers.

Now, because I am a naturally generous person, I cannot in good conscience do this shameless begging for myself only. Fellow Kossack Horace Boothroyd III has also applied for one.  And if you vote for me, please vote for him as well.

So, please vote for me to send me to Netroots Nation for our fellow teachers, and for the sake of public education across the country.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
