Microsoft in Education Blog
Our School Needs is a contest to raise awareness about the serious need that public schools are facing today and to demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to helping schools. Bing is asking one simple question: What does your school need?
In support of this contest, Bing will give away more than $500,000 in total prize and donation money to support public school classrooms like yours.*
See how you can participate and get your entry materials now.
Whether it's a new photography lab, remodeled gymnasium or new books for the library, Bing wants to hear what your school needs.
Bing has made the contest entry fun by giving participants the chance to write an essay, film a video, and submit pictures that best describe what "Our School Needs." It's designed to promote class participation and encourage parents, students, teachers and administrators to come together to support your school entry.
The contest kicks-off on September 16th and the last day to enter is October 22nd. The faster you get your entry posted, the more ratings you can get. You can find complete contest and entry information -- and order a free poster for your class -- at our website: bing.com/ourschoolneeds
