Save the earth and win an expenses-paid trip for your class to the Disneyland® Resort with Disney’s Planet Challenge! Disney’s Planet Challenge is a fun, free and highly-acclaimed project-based environmental competition for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classrooms across the United States. This year Disney has partnered with DonorsChoose.org to spread the news to teachers AND help you get the resources you need to do a hands-on project to help the environment.
Thanks to Disney’s Planet Challenge, DonorsChoose.org is offering a “Double Your Impact” challenge for all 4th, 5th, and 6th grade eligible environmental class projects under $650 in materials submitted before November 1st. Any project posted to DonorsChoose.org that meets these criteria will receive 50% funding via this offer once other donors choose to join in and fund the rest of the project. So get creative and think of classroom projects that encourage students to think and act environmentally at school and at home. Click here for examples of some cool hands-on environmental projects.
Additionally, any teacher that is registered for Disney’s Planet Challenge and submits a qualifying environmental project to DonorsChoose.org by November 1st will receive full funding by 12/18/2009. For more information on Disney’s Planet Challenge click here.
To participate in Disney’s Planet Challenge, teachers must register at Disney’s Planet Challenge website by December 18, 2009. Then, in addition to the regular DonorsChoose.org thank you process, teachers will be asked to complete this project with your class and submit the results to Disney by February 26, 2010. If your project wins this contest, you will earn a class trip for 3 days to Disneyland or 56 other prizes.
Teachers, submit your environmental project today to take advantage of this funding!
