This year instead of just watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, bring the football spirit into your class for an entire week! The World Food Programme is teaming up with Drew Brees to have our first ever Ricebowl Challenge.
Ricebowl Challenge 2011
The Ricebowl Challenge is a week-long competition organised by the award-winning on-line vocabulary game, Freerice, in partnership with the Maine Department of Education. New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees is the all-star of the competition, going head-to-head against thousands of students in Maine and across the country to answer trivia questions to see who can earn the most grains of rice.
“The Ricebowl Challenge is all about playing smart to tackle hunger,” said Brees, who will be building his team through his well-established social media network. “Whether you join my team or the opposing student team, this is a cause worth winning.”
For more information about how your school can get involved, go to www.freerice.com/ricebowl. Results will be tallied daily from 6-12 February and the top three scorers who rack up the most rice by 12 February win Drew Brees autographed footballs.
