      Hello Laura,
      I too am sitting in an icy Columbia, SC working on entries. I have entries 1
      and 4 in some short of rough draft state. Three National Board certified
      teachers are reading over them and offering suggestions. I did my video for
      entry 1 last week and am in the process of working on that entry. I hope to
      have it in a rough draft state by the end of the day as I leave tomorrow
      with 50 kids for a Model UN conference in Philly.

      I too would agree with Lauri on setting small goals. Of course I cannot say
      that I have done that; but, every certified teacher whom I have encountered
      has suggested that. Good Luck!

      Hello everyone and anyone!

      Well, it's a snow day here in icy Charlotte, North Carolina, and I'm
      slogging through my portfolio entries. I'm wondering if anyone would be
      willing to write in and just say where you are in the process, when your
      portfolio is due, any words of wisdom or inspiration, or if anyone else
      is as miserable as I am!

      Thanks!

      Laura

      DEADLINE: Proposals must be postmarked no later than February 1, 2004

      The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants

      and the U.S. Congress. The competition is open to individuals with a
      serious interest in studying Congress. Political scientists,
      historians, biographers, scholars of public administration or
      American studies, and journalists are among those eligible. The
      Center encourages graduate students to apply and awards a significant
      portion of the funds for dissertation research. Undergraduate or pre-
      Ph.D. study, research teams of two or more individuals, and
      organizations are not eligible.

      There is no standard application form. Applicants are responsible for
      showing the relationship between their work and the awards program
      guidelines. Applications are accepted at any time. All application
      materials must be postmarked on or before February 1, 2004. Awards
      will be announced in March 2004. Complete information about
      eligibility and application procedures may be found at The Center's
      Web site: http://www.dirksencenter.org/grantcongresearchaward.htm

      The Center, named for the late Senate Minority Leader Everett M.
      Dirksen, is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit research and
      educational organization devoted to the study of Congress and its
      leaders. Since 1978, the Congressional Research Awards (formerly the
      Congressional Research Grants) program has paid out $585,500 to
      support 315 projects.

      Hi Laura,
      I know how frustrating the process can be. My advice is to set a small goal
      for the day, like writing three pages on one entry, and complete it. If
      that's not what you want to achieve today, work on entry four's organization
      and verification sheets, for example. It's important that you keep moving.

      > Hi,
      It is also a snow day in Virginia and I am hoping for
      another tomorrow. I am so far behind that I thought I would
      write and make you feel better. I am beginning to compose
      my entry #1 and have not fully developed any of the entries
      as of yet and my due date is March 16th. I will be living
      hard in February. I have done both my video's and complied
      everything needed for entry #4 but I have been very lax in
      my writing. I'm trying to accomplish a little each day.
      Best of luck to you . Erin
