Knowledge Adventure has announced that on July 1, 2007, it will launch its Schools in Need Competition. The competition will provide 10 awards, each valued at $12,000, to 10 schools in need of reading assistance for their students.
The Schools in Need Competition is open to schools that need to raise reading scores by at least 30 percent among a population of students between grades K-8. Schools must also show a need to have supplemental reading materials that address specific reading deficiencies and to use the technological investments the school has made for reading instruction. Winning schools will receive the new Knowledge Adventure Academy line of products for early literacy, reading comprehension, and vocabulary, along with training and support. Schools may enter by completing an online form at www.knowledgeadventureschool.com that allows them to explain why their school is in need of reading assistance.
Entries must be received by no later than 11:59 PM on December 15, 2007 and will be judged by a panel of experts appointed by Knowledge Adventure School. The winning schools will be announced on January 23, 2008.
Knowledge Adventure will assist the winning schools with the implementation and evaluation of student usage. The company will also use its managing and reporting system to record student progress at the schools.
Complete competition rules will be available at www.knowledgeadventureschool.com on July 1, 2007.
