You're reading Ed100 because you want to help make schools better. But there's another angle, too: by learning about California's education system you can also win MONEY for your school's PTA.
Whenever you complete a lesson on Ed100, you earn a ticket for your school on the Ed100 Leaderboard. Periodically, Ed100 holds drawings using those tickets as entries to win. This school year's drawings are scheduled for November 16 and May 10. See rules for details. No purchase is offered or required.
Ed100 provides a practical way for parent leaders, teachers and community members to learn about education issues, one lesson at a time. Go to Ed100.org to sign up or sign in and start earning those tickets! Congratulations to the winners of past drawings!
What is the purpose of the drawings on Ed100.org?
These drawings encourage parent leaders to learn more about education issues and ideas by joining, using and discussing Ed100.org, a free online course.
How much can I win?
You, personally, can’t win anything in these drawings. Zero. But you could help your school's PTA.
Whenever you complete a lesson on Ed100, you earn a ticket in the next drawing.
Whoa, that’s awesome! Who funds these drawings?
All drawings held so far have been sponsored by the California State PTA, with a supporting grant from Full Circle Fund, a non-profit organization.
How much do tickets cost in the drawings?
Nothing. It’s FREE to enter, and Ed100 is FREE to use.
How do I enter? How do I get tickets for my school?
You sign up at Ed100.org, and earn tickets by completing lessons in Ed100.org. We call them "lesson tickets." You can also earn "bonus tickets," for example by completing all the lessons in a chapter or by using Facebook to invite others to join in.
Do I have to finish the whole course to win for my school?
No. Each lesson you complete earns a ticket, even if you don't finish the course. (But when you DO complete the course, you earn extra bonus tickets!)
Is my school eligible to win?
See the rules for detailed eligibility requirements. The rules include a requirement that at least two people from your school must sign up for your school's PTA to be eligible to win. The purpose of this requirement is to promote discussion, which takes at least two!
My school's new to Ed100. Do we have a chance of winning?
Yes. Each drawing selects ONLY from tickets earned in the current school year (more specifically, after the last drawing of the prior school year). The Leaderboard, by contrast, reflects all tickets ever earned.
How do I improve the chances that my school will win?
There are four ways to earn more tickets:
Can teachers, administrators, students and community members join, too?
YES, definitely. Use Ed100 to build your school community.
How can I get the most out of Ed100?
Create or join an Ed100 group at your school, in your community or online. Use it like a book club. By learning together you will have more fun, learn more, and have a much bigger chance of turning insights into actions for your school. (Your school will earn more tickets in the drawing, too!)
Who is operating the drawing?
The drawings are operated by the California State PTA, with support from Ed100.
Q: When will the next drawing be held?
Follow Ed100 on social media for news about that.
How much can my school win?
In past drawings, PTA units have been awarded prizes at two levels: $1,000 and $250.
