The Foundation will host 3 rounds of competition.  At the end of each round, the top teachers with the classroom with the most tracked minutes played will win a $250 Amazon.com gift card and each student from their winning class will receive a $7 McDonald's gift card.  One prize will be awarded to the following classrooms with the most minutes at the end of each round:

  • Small Class Size: 1-15 Students
