Not Later - Now.

There's a lot you don't know about California's education system, right? Here's a reason to learn more about it NOW.

December 7

On December 7, will hold a drawing. The PTAs of five schools will win prizes up to $1,000. Will yours be a winner?

Earning tickets in this drawing is easy, and it's something you want to do anyway. Just sign in, read lessons on Ed100 and pass quizzes. The lessons are available in English and Spanish, and each takes only a few minutes. It's all free.

Why We Hold These Drawings

The internet is a buffet of salty snacks and tempting treats. Faced with all those distractions, what makes someone choose to set aside Candy Crush and use their in-between moments to learn about California's education system by reading a lesson on Ed100, instead?

"Your homework would be done in no time, if you'd just sit down and do it!"
-- Every Mom, ever

The drawing helps create a moment of urgency. A reason to choose Ed100 instead of something else. Instagram beckons, but it can wait. Wouldn't it be more fulfilling to complete the next chapter on Ed100 and earn the two-ticket bonus for your school?

Tip: When you sign in, check your profile to make sure you have named the school that will benefit from your work.
