Bing: "Our School Needs" Contest

Budget cuts are taking away the arts in schools. More and more kids aren't getting art or music classes. These classes are important as studies show the arts help test scores. It's our kids that are suffering.

Bing is here to help!

We want to hear from teachers and students about what their school needs most. Look around your school and think about how it would benefit from winning $100,000.

What To Do
Students can work in groups, classes, or even school-wide to write an essay and take pictures finishing the sentence "Our School Needs: ___________."

To enter:

  • Write an essay (500 to 800 words)
  • Take pictures (3 to 5 photos)
  • Film a video (not required, but fun! Maximum of 3 minutes in length)

Who Can Enter
Any student or teacher from a K-12 school can enter. While students under 18 are encouraged to create the entry, a parent, legal guardian or a teacher must submit it.

What Could Our School Win?
Bing will award a quarter-million dollars, divided among four schools—$50,000 to three first-prize winners, and one $100,000 grand prize.

Take action and click here to enter now! What do you have to lose? The winner could be you!
