As schools across the country undergo severe budget cuts, students and teachers head back to classrooms this fall to find crucial supplies lacking and entire programs cut.
In their latest philanthropic campaign supporting kids’ education, Bing wants to help teachers and students by providing them with supplies and financial support needed to ensure a successful learning experience. Bing will potentially give away over $1 million dollars through their new “Our School Needs” program. This user-generated content competition easily enables students and teachers in elementary, middle and high schools to submit a request for what their school needs most by submitting a photo, essay or optional video.
Students and teachers can learn more about the contest and submit an entry on behalf of their school by visiting www.bing.com/ourschoolneeds. From now until October 22nd, you can upload photos, essays and videos telling Bing what your school needs for a chance to win up to $100,000!
I was so excited to hear about this new contest for schools. I helped my mother in law who is a teacher submit a project to DonorsChoose.org and she was just funded fully! She received her ELMO Teacher’s Tool and couldn’t be more grateful for the amazing donations from people who saw her vision for her class!
