"I saw the contest at Gateway to the 21st Century and thought I'd enter it. In the process I found many wonderful links to resources. The way the site is arranged to be searchable by subject, age, type of lesson and more is excellent and makes finding just the right materials easy." - Denise Bell, K-12 teacher from Washington.
"I thought that the Treasure Hunt was a great way to explore the many resources that are available at The Gateway. I've recommended this site to colleagues, and I will continue to visit it even now that the contest is over."- Cara Wegrzyn, 5th grade teacher from Michigan.
"The Gateway Treasure Hunt was very easy to participate in and it was a fantastic way of exploring the site and finding even more useful and helpful resources as a homeschooler."- Megan Franklin, homeschooler from Arizona.
Watch for our Back to School Treasure Hunt, which will start in September. Details will be posted on the Gateway in early August.
