We are the awards show Education deserves, not the one that it needs right now.
The #EduBroAwards are back and better than ever! Please take this brief pause to collect yourself and keep reading.
Good. Now that you are slightly more calm and tad bit more collected, I will go over the fine details of how the #EduBroAwards work and why they have come back.
The #EduBroAwards show was conceived as a way for people to celebrate one another after a long year of working hard, sharing, caring and generally being awesome. There are too many awards shows that focus on the few when we should all be celebrating the many. That is what makes our awards show so special and different from all of the rest. We want everyone to be recognized for how truly awesome they are. We have unlimited awards to give out and we can't wait to see the craziness that ensues when we hold out live Google Hangout to hand out the awards.
The Awards Ceremony is tentatively scheduled for Thursday December 19 at 8:30PM EST.
Things the #EduBroAwards will be about:
Veiled references to 90's pop culture
Not so veiled references to 80's pop culture
Too many inside jokes
Kyle Pace's hugs
Steven Anderson's height
Boy Meets World
Girl Meets World
All other things that ARE awesome
Things the #EduBroAwards will NOT be about:
Fashion from the 1830's
Saying mean things about Finland, students or parents
All other things that are NOT awesome
Here are how the #EduBroAwards are going to work this year:
- You can create your own award and nominate anyone you want.
- You can create your own award and nominate yourself.
- Someone can be nominated for more than one award.
- Everyone will win something.
- Here is a list of the award categories we have created.
- Best Mustache/Beard in Education
- Best Hug Giver
- Twitter User Most Likely to RT a Post They Didn't Read
- Best Twitter Avatar
- Best Title to a Blog Post
- Best Educational Road-trip
- The Daniel LaRussa "You're The Best Around" Award
- All nominations must be made in the comment box.
- You must identify yourself in the comment. No Anonymous comments.
- You must nominate yourself for one of the awards created or one you have created.
- Tweet your nominations with the #EduBroAwards tag
- Nominations end Friday November 29th.
- The #EduBroAwards will be held using a Google Hang Out that will be streamed on YouTube
- Nick and Tim will host the awards after Miley Cyrus backed out and Tina Fay and Amy Poehler were unavailable.
- Every award will be presented live on the show. If you were nominated, you get to hear your name read out by Nick or Tim.
- Badges will be available after the ceremony is over.
- The show will be funny.
- Casual attire is encouraged, but formal attire would be way funnier.
The last thing we want to say before you start filling the comments with nominations is that this is supposed to be a fun event. We love our friends and we want to recognize them in a way that is not a competition focused on self promotion or popularity. We want to do something fun and the #EduBroAwards are just the thing to put a smile on people's faces.

As a previous #Edubro award winner it is an honor to make my nominations this year.ReplyDelete
In no particular order, listed in a particular order, my nominees are the following:
"Most likely to post a picture of awesome food that will surely piss you off because you had it one time and you've never forgotten it." Tim Gwynn. If I have to look at another awesome picture of his parents cooking, I might just have to drive to Arizona and become an honorary member of the Gwynn family. Seriously though, that meal we had at ISTE 2013 ranks as #1 in my book.
"Most likely to find a really awesome place to stay for ISTE." Hands down this should go to Beth Still. While it was about 100 miles from San Antonio we did get to see scorpions, jack rabbits and armadillos. And nearly saw the Nerdy Teacher loose an eyebrow at the outdoor kitchen.
"Best awards show that should replace the CMA's." The #Edubro Awards. I'd watch that.
"Most awesome tweets about being awesome today." Web20classroom. I really love that guy. Like a lot.
"Most likely to get asked by lots of random people to give hugs, in kinda an uncomfortable way." Kyle Pace. Boy does give a mean hug. Seriously. You should ask him for one.
"Most likely to be the most awesome librarian ever." Every librarian I've ever met. They are just so awesome!
"Best person who is most all around one of the most awesome people I know." Adam Bellow. That dude gives a mean keynote.
"2 Guys who are having loads of fun while teaching all of us that it's important to laugh at ourselves every once in a while." Tim and Nick. Rock on friends!
Be awesome today!
And from the Librarians of the world who ADORE you & your endless support, encouragement, inspiration, & friendship? Can we say Thank you!? Muuwa!Delete
