We know you’re probably cramming for a test, texting a friend, and preparing a snack as we speak. It seems as though you were born for multitasking in this high-speed world. But have you ever thought about how you can fight hunger and prepare for your bright future at the same time? Here’s how.
Thanks to an innovative partnership with Kaplan Test Prep, Freerice.com will be your favourite not-so-average online study tool this month. If you’re a high school student in North America, we’re challenging you to join our “Score Against Hunger” competition on Freerice.com. Show us your smarts while helping a less-fortunate student– and you could win big for raising rice. We’re talking a $1,000 college scholarship for the person who raises the most rice throughout the competition – and a $1,000 donation in your name to the World Food Programme’s lifesaving work helping the hungry.
Last spring, Kaplan shared actual test prep question for the new SAT subject on Freerice. The SAT subject is just one of many subjects – from literature to geography – you can sharpen your smarts on this month as you compete to win the college scholarship and make a difference on hunger. As always, 10 actual grains of rice will be donated to the hungry through WFP for every question you get right. You’ll brighten the future of a student like you as you reach for your own incredible opportunities. That’s what we call a win/win.
You likely already know that your favourite colleges care about more than your test scores. When you apply, they want to see how you’re engaged in global issues and making the world a better place in your own unique way. Now, you can show universities how you’re using your intellect to score against the world’s greatest solvable problem: hunger.
Doing good is no longer an extracurricular: it’s a way of life. Win a college scholarship, practice critical skills, and show your community how giving back puts the “bright” in your bright future.
Do you think you’re smart enough to take on hunger? We agree!
The competition ends December 19th, so get started now!
