Students and Teachers - This is Your Big Chance to Win Up to $100,000 for Your School in Bing's Giveaway

Additional Contest is Giving Money to Schools, Too

Thanks to an email I received today from MomCentral, one of the mom's blogging networks I am active in,  I've learned that is giving away a chance to win up to $100,000 for your school.  This is too good to not share it with all my readers:  Bing will be giving away over $1 million through their new Our School Needs program.
With the current climate of Great Recession elevating the number of budget cuts in education at the national, state, and local levels, news about this contest is a God-send for any of us with school-age kids.  That's my four kids above on the first day of school of third and fifth grades a few years ago.

Students and teachers -- elementary, middle, and high school -- are invited to submit their entry requests on behalf of their schools.  Submissions will be accepted through October 22, 2010. 
To participate, K-12 students can work individually, in small groups, as a classroom, or even a whole school to prepare their entry including
  • A 500-800 Word Essay
  • 3 to 5 Photos
  • A Video, 3 minutes or less (Optional)
If you've been inside any public school lately, for sure, you know that just about every classroom is lacking in a major kind of way.  So, I'm sure most of you students and teachers can think of something your school needs desperately.  To enter, as well as for detailed contest rules and additional information on how to pitch your school's story and to see entry examples to inspire you, visit the official contest site Bing Our School Needs.

Special BONUS Giveaway from MomCentral is fueling the outreach effort not only by encouraging Mommy Bloggers like me to spread the news about Bing's contest.  They're also hosting an additional giveaway offering each of five random winners a $50 donation to use at to support their local classroom!  

The best news is you don't have to be a student or teacher to enter this second giveaway -- anyone can submit for this contest that knows a school that needs help.  So, as a mom myself I've already entered on behalf of the public school district's Independent Study program that my four kids are attending.  Check out what I'm hoping to win for their school, or better yet, enter the related giveaway on MomCentral's site, for your own chance to win, by clicking HERE
