The third annual Follett Challenge launches today. This year’s contest will award prizes to 15 schools for the best and most effective approaches to 21st century learning.

With a total prize value of $200,000 in products and services from Follett, the overall winner will earn a $60,000 prize, plus a celebration at the school, while each of the other three semifinalists will earn $30,000 prizes. Ten $5,000 prizes will be awarded to the “People’s Choice” winners—those schools that receive the highest number of online votes from the public. Judges will select the grand-prize winner from among the four semifinalists.

To participate, entrants must complete an online application and upload a three- to five-minute video describing their program.
