Score Challenge

 



Attention Tennessee students!

It’s time to enter the next Students Rise to the Challenge Competition, a chance for you to speak out about the great learning that is happening every day in your classes, schools, and districts – and to win a $250 scholarship.
Students know first-hand that their teachers are working hard to prepare them for success after high school with learning they will use in the real world, whether going to college or career. To help others understand how this work is changing lives, SCORE is inviting Tennessee public school students in grades 3-12 to submit an original essay, song, poem, or video that addresses one of the following:
·         Grades 3-5: Give a real world example of how you are using knowledge and skills you’ve learned in your classes.
·         Grades 6-8: Give a real world example of how you are using knowledge and skills you’ve learned in your science or social studies classes.
·         Grades 9-12: Give a real world example of how you are using knowledge and skills you’ve learned in your math or English classes.
 
To get you started, here are a few examples. Write a song to explain how learning about the different types of clouds can help you predict the weather. Create a video showing how your algebra skills help you split a bill in a restaurant. Please don’t feel that you are limited to these ideas! SCORE values creativity and originality, so we encourage you to think outside the box when crafting your entries.
 
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Central on Monday, September 15, 2014. Please note, students must work singly on their entries and we cannot accept team submissions. Read more about how to prepare and submit your entry.

After semifinalists are selected, a poll on SCORE’s Facebook page will determine the finalists in each category. Finalists will be interviewed before the winners are selected. Follow the hashtags #SCOREprize and #TNrttc on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with the excitement.

Winners will be awarded a $250 college scholarship and will share their work at the SCORE Prize event on Monday, October 27, in Nashville. Fellow students, educators from across Tennessee, and special guest performer Dustin Lynch will all be present at the event.
