The Bing “Our School Needs” contest is designed to help schools across the country get the resources they need. “Our School Needs” is a program to help parents, teachers, students and the community make a difference at their local schools. The competition encourages students and teachers to work in groups, classes or individually to write an essay and take pictures finishing the sentence “My School Needs…” Entrants are also encouraged to create a 1-3 minute video that shows people what their school needs. Once submitted, they can then petition friends, family and networks to join the campaign and visit the Our School Needs site to RATE their local entries. 15 finalists will compete to receive either one $100k grand prize or 3 first place prizes of $50K each. You can simply get the How-To-Enter kit here. The contest is open to U.S. public and private schools, grades K-12.
