Alaska Chapter


Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

School of the Future Competition

Alaska Members:

I am writing to encourage you to get involved in the Association for Learning Environments' School of the Future Competition for middle school students. You can do this in a number of ways:

  • Recruit Middle School Teachers/Teams to participate. Information on how to enter, promotional videos, curriculum and much more can be found at here.
  • Volunteer as a mentor. This is an exceptionally rewarding experience. These kids are great and very appreciative of any help we give them. We currently have teams signed up from Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Wasilla. Please contact me if you are interested in mentoring and I will help you connect with a nearby team.
  • Volunteer as a judge. I am looking for a few individuals to judge the competition. This involves reviewing each proposal, attending the interviews, and scoring each entry. This activity will probably happen in early January. Please contact me if you are interested in judging.

Alaska has had phenomenal success in the several years we have participated, winning the international competition both times and creating peak learning experiences for Alaska's middle school students. Support from the community and members is a big part of that success. Please contact me if you want to get involved.
