[Contest] Announcing the 2016 – 2017 Edmentum Academic Sprints, Featuring Study Island!

Monday, August 22, 2016 -- Shannon LaBree

Edmentum is excited to announce another contest for our Study Island users! We’ve seen such a great response to our prior Academic Sprints that for the 2016-17 school year, we’ve decided to challenge all Study Island users to compete for Blue Ribbons in our first ever year-long contest!

This extended contest will run from August 22, 2016 through May 31, 2017, and we’ve got plenty of great prizes including iPad mini tablets, Chromebooks, gift cards, pizza parties, and classroom supplies. We will be announcing winners at the end of each month and semester, as well as grand prize winners at the end of the school year, so you and your students have even more chances to win!

Student winners will be determined based on the highest number of Blue Ribbons earned, and school winners will be determined by average Blue Ribbons earned per student. We will have one student and one school winner each month from September through May, at the end of each semester, and at the conclusion of the school year. Remember—Blue Ribbons are earned by scoring a 70% or above in Study Island practice activities and built tests. Be sure to read our Official Rules and FAQ page for more information.

Are you and your students ready to sprint for learning and fun this school year? Register your school for our 2016-17 Academic Sprints today, and don’t forget to download our Blue Ribbon Chart to easily track your students’ progress!
