AnneLan just announced the following news:

1. All 3 schools in Paete will be recipients of Think.com.
2. The 3 schools in Paete will be the very first schools in the Philippines to
have Think.com. They will be Think.com Philippines' pilot schools.

This is great news. Now, alay computer has a web portal to highlight
Paete. Think.com reaches out to thousands of schools worldwide. It will be
an excellent avenue for Paete's students and teachers to be part of a
worldwide community. The schools should start thinking about
showcasing Paete in this site. The Think.quest program is also a
very good opportunity to construct web sites that will share Paete's
rich culture and heritage to the world. Think.com is having
something like a special Yahoo!, designed specifically for elementary
students and teachers. It is a safe email, forum, and web hosting
service for kids. It is an accomplishment for Paete schools to be
first on this program in the Philippines. We are getting closer and
closer to bringing alay computer to the world.

Judges will select one Entry that demonstrates excellence in Global

value, promote a sense of global citizenship, and help to bridge the

Perspectives Award").

Each team member (students, Primary Coach, and Assistant Coach if
any) whose Entry is selected for an Age Division Award or the Global
Perspectives Award will receive a prize ("Prize") The Prize includes

ThinkQuest Live:

Attendance at ThinkQuest Live will include round trip coach airfare
transportation from the airport nearest the winner's residence (as
determined by the Foundation), approximately four nights' double
occupancy hotel accommodations, and participation in ThinkQuest Live
activities. The trip to ThinkQuest Live is valued at approximately
$4,000 USD per participant. (In addition, as part of the Prize,
winners that are United States residents will receive a cash amount
of $1,880 USD [amount may vary based on the actual value of the trip
to ThinkQuest Live] to reflect presumed United States tax liability.)

Each student that has not reached the age of legal majority in
his/her country/state of citizenship must be accompanied by a
Chaperone (parent/legal guardian or an adult that the parent/legal
guardian has authorized in writing to act as the student's
Chaperone), who will also attend ThinkQuest Live as a guest of the
Foundation.

This is an opportunity to visit what Saida calls "America, the
Beautiful". Just think of it as something to similar to writing a newsletter, but on the web. Smile
