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. The next drawing is coming up on Dec 11, 2018. See rules for details. No purchase is offered or required. (The subsequent drawing will be June 4, 2019.)
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 now. The drawings also provide school organizations with a useful deadline to organize learning groups.
How much can I win?
You, personally, can’t win anything in these drawings. Zero. But you could help your school's PTA win. The largest prize is $1,000.
Whenever you complete a lesson on Ed100, you earn a ticket in the next drawing.
Whoa, that’s awesome! Who funds these drawings?
The drawings are supported by Full Circle Fund, a non-profit organization. Ed100 originated as a volunteer project by members of Full Circle Fund.
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?
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 inviting 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!)
How does the Leaderboard work?
The Leaderboard shows the tickets that you earn on Ed100 by passing quizzes or by earning bonuses. The "current" view of the Leaderboard shows only the tickets you have earned in the current school year, reflecting the way that the drawings work. Each school year is a level playing field! All schools start the year with zero current tickets. Quizzes are all re-opened, so that you can review the lessons and earn additional, new tickets. Even Ed100 graduates can earn new tickets this way.
The "All Time" view of the Leaderboard shows all tickets earned since the original launch of Ed100. Before the 2017-18 school year, the All Time view was the default. We changed it to encourage school groups not to rest on their laurels.
Is my school eligible to win?
See the rules for detailed eligibility requirements. The rules include an important requirement: 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 final drawing of the prior school year).
How do I improve the chances that my school will win?
There are five 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 Ed100.org, a project of Full Circle Fund.
Q: How can I know when future drawings will be held?
Follow Ed100 on social media.
How much can my school win?
In past drawings, PTA units have been awarded prizes at two levels: $1,000 and $250.
