Join the Going for Gold Summer Contest
A new school year is just around the corner—and we know the perfect way to get ready for and celebrate your student’s new academic benchmark. By simply answering a question about your student’s accomplishments and academic journey, your family will earn a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card for back-to-school supplies through Connections Academy’s new summer contest, Going for Gold!
How does it work?
To help families prepare for a successful school year, Connections Academy®—supported schools are focusing on and discussing one key aspect of the program Monday through Friday, for five weeks, in a series of informative posts and videos on all Connections Academy Facebook pages. Every Wednesday, families are asked to share stories, pictures, and advice in the comments for a chance to win the grand prize. Responses can be submitted until Friday mornings. One random winner is then chosen for the week—so it’s important to reply to the prompts each week! The contest will run from July 18 to August 21, 2016.
Why should I participate?
Aside from getting the chance to score the prize, participating in the contest is a great way for both currently enrolled and new families to become more familiar with the program and start the school year off strong. The contest posts will include information on interactive resources that you may not know about and that could be useful to you and your student throughout the school year. It’s also a good opportunity to connect with other families in the virtual learning community—you’ll be surprised by how much you can learn from their experience and stories!
How do I participate?
If you haven’t already done so, make sure to “like” Connections Academy’s Facebook page or your school’s state-specific Facebook page to view and participate in the contest posts. Your family will be eligible to win after replying in the comments to the questions posted on Wednesday. The participant has to be at least 18 years old, but parents are welcome to respond on behalf of their students.
