The NDCTE Board would like to extend our sincerest gratitude for making this year's conference a memorable event.From Swag Bags to Louise Erdrich to Kelly Gallagher, to the many wonderful exchanges with peers from across the state, we know that you will enter the classroom invigorated!

The Board would also like to announce that we selected the dates of July 21-23, 2015 after evaluating several options.Although a Tuesday through Thursday format earlier in the month was necessary because of facilities conflicts, we are excited about trying this new option.We hope that you can make these dates work for you as well.

In addition, the Board is pleased to announce the John Wall Aspiring Artist Scholarship for students, beginning in 2015.John was a dear friend and mentor to many throughout the state, and he held our organization in high regard.We are thrilled to honor his memory with this $500 yearly award for our students. We will provide more details about the application process as we iron out the details.

"The NDCTE has held such an esteemed place in my teaching life for many years.  The organization allows for and encourages so much growth and dedication to our noble profession.  Yes, the tremendous paperwork can be grueling, but continued inspiration comes from fellow English teachers and appreciative students. Thank you for a stupendous conference. We all gathered many new ideas to use in the classroom."
