Thanks.  I was thinking something different from the usual of pulling
tickets like all of the other conferences.

Here are some ideas for awarding prizes but not during the sessions.

1.       Before the conference let’s find out by registration who traveled
the longest distance.

2.       Who was the 100th person to register? Or 200th or 400th?

3.       During lunch have everyone stand up that has worked for a school
district over 10 years.  Then increase by 5 or 1 until we find the person
who has worked for a school district the longest.

4.       Before lunch, we could tie ribbons around some of the drink
glasses and give a prize to whoever has a ribbon.

5.       Set up a display of 6-8 door prizes and let the winner choose
which prize until all have been awarded.

6.       Set up a display of prizes with boxes with  a slit in the top of
the box.  Anyone who wants to win that prize can drop their name in the
box.  When we get ready to award the prize, pull from the names in the box.

I’ll keep thinking about the sessions.

I've been thinking.....Yes, I know that's scary.  I know we always do the
tickets and we started last year with writing the names on the cards in the
rooms for prizes, but I was wondering if there was something that we could
do that would be fun to do.  We will have to keep the tickets for
somethings, but what are some creative ways to give things away.  We all
know how long the days can be sitting in sessions all day long and how you
can loose interest (Don't say it hasn't happened to you.)  For example, in
Session 1, across the board if you want, the presenter says "Marco" during
their presentation and sees if anyone says "Polo" and maybe a second time
if no one answers the first time, if someone does not then no prize is
given.  If we have prizes leftover from Wednesday sessions and the morning
sessions of Thursday, we go in during lunch play some upbeat music, see if
anyone starts dancing, give a prize.  I would like to make it fun.  Let's
keep people guessing what we will do next.

Any thoughts?  Suggestions?  Any you are crazy and go take your meds?
