As a former teacher, I know first-hand how much travel enhances education. So, I’m thrilled to share this fabulous Send A Teacher Traveling (S.A.T.T.) award program from ExperiencePlus! Bicycle Tours recognizing outstanding U.S. public school teachers and rewarding them with a complimentary bike tour.

Since the program began in 1996 ExperiencePlus! has given away over 20 free bicycle tours across Europe and Latin America. Will you, or your favorite teacher, be the next winner? 

Application deadlines and rules:

Applications must be postmarked or emailed by March 30, 2013. Applicants will explain why they should receive a free bicycle tour and how she/he will use the S.A.T.T. experience in their classroom curriculum. Winners will be selected after consideration of all application materials and will be announced by April 25th and travel must be complete by January 1, 2014. Check out the qualifications.

The 2012 winner was Sally Miller, an elementary art teacher in Pensacola, Florida. She chose the Best of Provence Plus! the Luberon and Aix-en-Provence tour for her prize and blogged about the experience, here.
