Bing is once again showing its commitment to education by helping teachers and students through providing them with the financial support needed to ensure a successful learning experience. Bing will give away up to $1.1 million dollars through its Our School Needs contest. I've blogged about there program before, and today I want to tell you about this next voting phase, that you can help with by Voting!

  • Bing is awarding a quarter-million dollars in prize money divided among four schools in need, and your vote can make all the difference.
  • The entry with the most votes wins $100k, and 3 others will each win $50k.
  • Bing is giving away up to $900,000 to schools in need through, a non-profit website where public school teachers can post classroom projects that need funding.  Be one of the first 30,000 to vote for your favorite finalists each day and receive a $3 donation code to redeem for the classroom project of your choice!
  • The voting phase starts Friday, October 29 and runs through Sunday, November 7. America will be asked to vote on the 15 Our School Needs finalists as determined by the panel of judges. The winners will be announced Tuesday, November 9. 
A little bit about the entries ~ In a bid to win $100,000 for their school, parents, students, and teachers around the country have been telling Bing what their school needs through essays, photos and videos.  You can read some of their amazing stories here.  

A panel of judges, including critically acclaimed, Academy Award-winning director and producer, Davis Guggenheim, of Waiting for Superman and An Inconvenient Truth fame, and founder, Charles Best, then narrowed it down to the 15 finalists.  

So go ahead and Vote here!  Remember voting ends this Sunday November 7th!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Bing and received a gift card and giving code to thank me for taking the time to participate."
