Red Nose Day in School is one element of the broader Red Nose Day campaign, which launched in the U.S. in 2015 with a mission to end child poverty.

Entries for the Red Nose Challenge are open from now through April 17, 2017. To enter, students must create a one to two-minute video sharing their idea to make a difference for children living in poverty, as well as one statistic or fact on the issue, and why everyone should care.
