Ok, here is the short and skinny version of the story.I am a middle school science teacher and my wife has cancer. Currently she is undergoing chemo and is pretty much out of commission most of the time. She is beating it though. We have two kids under nine years old and quite frankly I am swamped. I don't even know how I am doing it now. School starts in a few days and I would like to try out a cool idea I learned in the summer from another science teacher - classroom money.

The idea is simple. Create some fake money and give students "classroom bucks" ( or whatever you want to call it) for an A on a test, homework completion etc... The dollars would be used at the end of the week to buy classroom supplies like pencil, erasers ,etc.

Since I teach science at the 7th and 8th grade level I want to create "Science Bucks" which will ideally resemble the old silver certificate art series the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was commissioned to create after Congress authorized the creation of a new series of silver certificates in 1886 - or something equally as beautiful. But it does not need to be these. I just think they are cooler in design than our current dollar bills.

The idea I have in my head is to use famous scientists for all the denominations up to $100. Each denomination would also incorporate what they are famous for. Example - Newton's bill would have his 3 laws of motion and law of universal gravitation incorporated in the design. Maybe even an apple falling in the background. Maybe even a few drawings etc... The more the better.

So here is where I beg. Any Photoshop wizards want to tackle one of these bills ( or all)? Only the front needs to be done. I will put a mini biography and some quotes on the back. I would be willing to pay about $10 per bill - sorry, but that is all I can afford now.

$1 = Einstein

$2 = Darwin

$5 = Hawking

$10 = Copernicus

$20 = Galileo

$50 = Tesla (because he rocks )

$100 = Newton ( maybe the smartest man to walk the planet)

This request would be more likely to get attention if it were posted to the PSAEF that is linked here.

I'm doubting that a monetary reward challenge will get greened, but this was a good effort to get someone to look at your request.

Sorry about the cancer thing, cancer sucks.

Since this doesn't seem to be an actual contest, I posted the PS at full resolution. If I need to drop it down to contest guidelines, let me know.

I don't know how others feel about it, but take the $10 and treat your wife to a banana split or an ice cream sundae or maybe one of those frozen yogurt things with all the tasty toppings.

Not to mention the famous U.S. biologist and author, Rachel Carson, of 'Silent Spring' fame.
