For the second time in three years, the Grand Prize winner of the Follett Challenge is from the state of Alaska. Tudor Elementary School, part of the Anchorage School District, learned in a video announcement it had won the seventh annual contest, which is sponsored by Follett.
For its winning entry—“Young Global Citizens”—Tudor Elementary, with an enrollment of 346 students, earns a $60,000 prize in Follett products and services plus a celebration at their school.
Last month, Follett Challenge announced Tudor Elementary was one of three semifinalists along with Middle School 343 – Academy of Aplied Mathematics and Technology in Bronx, N.Y. (video: “Why We Debate”); and North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in Durham (video: “When Your Classroom Spans the State”). Both schools each earn $30,000 in Follett products and services. Another 10 schools, whose video submissions received the highest number of online votes from the public, each earned $8,000 in Follett products and services.
