The Bing "Our School Needs" Contest

Due to recent budget cuts, our son's school has undergone quite a few changes this year. For example, the principal is calling on parent volunteers to work in the office and as lunch aids in the cafeteria because there is no longer sufficient paid help. Each class is now only allowed to visit the school library to check out books every other week because they now share a librarian with another school in our town. Although volunteering is a temporary solution to this difficult problem, schools should also focus on fixing things that have an obtainable permanent or long-term solution. That is what the Bing "Our School Needs" contest is all about. This contest, like organizations such as DonorsChoose.org, are giving educators and students the chance to think of solutions to their existing problems and then giving them a way to achieve these solutions.

Watch this very fun video to find out how to enter to win $100,000 and other cash prizes for your school . . .

In summary, a student or a teacher needs to include in their entry a story, a photo, and an optional video about one thing their school really needs. The entry must be submitted by someone 18 years or older. Entries are then rated by the public and those that make it to the final round will be voted upon.

This is the last week to enter the Bing "Our School Needs" contest! The deadline for entries is Friday, October 22nd, 2010. Voting begins on October 27th. Click on this link to read the official contest rules.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Bing and received a DonorsChoose.org giving code and gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
