I love that I have lots of teachers and homeschooling parents as readers. Today I’m excited to tell you about a cool contest with a $3,000.00 prize I know you would put to good use! Not an educator? Keep reading, because I’m going to tell you how you can win great cash prizes, too!
H&R Block’s “How Big is a Billion?” contest is a new educational program that asks teachers to submit their creative math assignments for the chance to win a $3,000.00 classroom grant. All it takes is your great idea to help kids understand what a billion is!
It seems like all the talk in education these days is about math and science, and I love the idea of finding ways to help kids understand big numbers. I know we could use some help with that around here, since Henry is constantly announcing that we owe him eleventy times infinity million dollars, or something similar.
I included some of the cool infographics the H&R Block team sent in case you need some inspiration.
You will need to “Like,” the page to get access to the contest information. The deadline is March 14th. I know that’s pretty quick, but I think it might improve your odds. The top prize for each level is a $3,000.00 award for your classroom. There are also 2nd and 3rd place awards of $2,000.00 and $1,000.00 at each level. Finalists will be selected with help from WeAreTeachers (An Amazing resource), and H&R Block will award the Grand Prizes.
I hope you’ll share this in the faculty lounge, post it on your fb page, email your homeschooling pals, or otherwise spread the word.
If you’re not a teacher, you’re not left out! I’m co-hosting a Twitter party (Woot! Woot!), with cold, hard cash prizes. Yep-answer some trivia questions on Twitter, and you could be randomly selected to win a $200.00 gift card. That’s a prize worth Tweeting for! That will be taking place on Tuesday at 9AM. If you’re not on Twitter, go join! It’s fun, and unlike some other social media these days (looking at you Facebook), when you follow SoundsFunMom, you’ll see All my Tweets! You can get more details about that event, and RSVP right here. You’re welcome to just join in on Tuesday, too. Follow me, or #HowBigIsABillion, Tweet answers to questions, and you could see your name as a winner!
