I don’t know about your school district, but in ours, teachers have received huge pay cuts. Not only teachers, but programs as well, athletics, band and electives like foreign language. Parents and teachers are stepping up and volunteering to help out, but it really isn’t enough.
Right now, Bing is hosting a contest called "Our School Needs." Bing will award a quarter-million dollars, divided among four schools—$50,000 to three first-prize winners, and one $100,000 grand prize! Why wouldn’t you enter your school? Check out their video for hints on the submission process. You can enter between now and Friday, October 22nd. So you have to act quick!
What To Do
Students can work in groups, classes, or even school-wide to write an essay and take pictures finishing the sentence "Our School Needs: ___________." To enter:
- Write an essay (500 to 800 words)
- Take pictures (3 to 5 photos)
- Film a video (not required, but fun! Maximum of 3 minutes in length)
Who Can Enter
Any student or teacher from a K-12 school can enter. While students under 18 are encouraged to create the entry, a parent, legal guardian or a teacher must submit it.
What Could Our School Win?
Bing will award a quarter-million dollars, divided among four schools—$50,000 to three first-prize winners, and one $100,000 grand prize.
Please enter a submission for your school! Just follow the easy steps and help your school during these tough times.
