Summary: Listeners all over the world have the opportunity to start a simple travel bug, a TB tag with an ISTE lapel pin attached. To start the travel bug, send your name and shipping address to Burt Lo at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you receive the travel bug, please visit geocaching.com to post a picture of the TB with the geocache where it is being released, along with an interesting fact about your location. The travel bugs will travel towards Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with several categories for winning a prize:
1. Be the closest to the Pennsylvania Convention Center by June 26, 2011.
2. Travel the farthest distance before June 26, 2011.
3. Have the most number of geocachers help move the TB along by June 26, 2011.
In addition to the geoacher who starts the winning travel bug, everyone who helps the TB along and posts a picture and interesting fact on the TB page at geocaching.com will be eligible to win a prize. The winning travel bugs will be announced at the 2011 ISTE Conference. The other winners will be chosen by raffle at the 2011 ISTE Conference.
Prizes: The geocachers who start the winning TB will get an autographed copy of GPS and Geocaching in Education. All geocachers who help the travel bugs along and post a picture and interesting fact at geocaching.com will also be eligible to win an autographed book. Winners will also be able to choose a prize from the Current PodCacher Prize Vault.
Raffle tickets for the drawing will be awarded to all geocachers who move an ISTE travel bug along and who post a picture an interesting fact about their location at geocaching.com
