Pioneer Middle School needs local support to win Follette Challenge
Monday February 4, 2013 | By:Press Release |
YORKSHIRE — Pioneer Middle School will participate in the Follette Challenge, during February and March.
In the Follett Challenge competition, schools showcase how their students are being prepared for the 21st century.
The stated goal of the Follette Challenge competition is to determine how school programs are providing students with critical thinking, communication, literacy and collaboration skills.
The Follett Challenge entry was composed of two parts: a written entry and a video.
The prizes for the Follett Challenge range from $5,000 – $60,000. All prize moneys go toward the purchase of new library books and e-books.
Pioneer Middle School’s entry into the competition was centered upon the school-wide non-fiction reading and research unit. During this unit, students learned how to read various types of non-fiction materials.
Students then wrote their own non-fiction books. A celebration was held, for these students, with family members, teachers and peers attending.
Pioneer Middle School’s video must be voted for, by community members, in order for the school to win prizes. To vote for Pioneer, visit www.follettchallenge.com. Voters may vote one time per day, between Feb. 6 and March 16.
