Microsoft had a special gift for participants in this year's Scripps National Spelling Bee, a brand new Surface tablet along with an Office 365 subscription. All 281 spellers received the package, along with a Skype gift card for calling and texting mobile phones. Skype program manager Yan Zhong says that the gift card was included to let participants continue to foster friendships made during the Bee, in a post on the Micorsoft in Education blog.
I've also helped arrange for every speller to receive a Skype gift card that can be used for calling and texting mobile phones. That way, everyone will be able to maintain the new friendships they've formed, no matter where their friends are located around the globe.
Microsoft is the first-ever "technology champion" for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. What do you think of their gift to the participants in this year's event? Let us know below in the comments.
