It’s finally summer—time for sun, shorts, sandals…and a chance to win a spectacular prize from IXL! This is your golden opportunity to show off the skills that you honed this past school year and to learn even more over the summer.
Join the IXL Study in the Sun contest, a summer competition to see which students, classrooms, and schools in the United States can answer the most questions on IXL. Competition will be scorching hot—can you handle the heat? Practice IXL from home, at the computer lab, and on your iPads to come out on top! On August 1, we will announce the winners on Facebook. Each winning school will receive a $500 gift card, winning classrooms will receive a pizza party, and the top students will receive an Android tablet.
The contest begins June 16. Enter today!
Eligibility: All participants must register online by July 31 by clicking here. Schools and classrooms should be part of an active IXL subscription at elementary, middle or high schools. Individuals should be part of an active IXL school or family membership. To be eligible for a prize, each registrant (school, classroom or individual) must have an average percentage correct of 60% or higher over the course of the 6-week competition.
Determination of winners: IXL will select the 3 schools, classrooms and individuals from the elementary and middle/high school levels (6 schools, 6 classrooms, and 6 individuals total) that have completed the most questions per student on IXL between June 16, 2014, at 12:01 am (PST) and July 31, 2014, at 11:59 pm (PST). Winners will be announced on August 1, 2014. For the middle/high school level, only questions from grade 4 and above will be counted. Questions answered for both math and language arts will be counted. Skills that are repeated after they have been mastered once will not be counted. For the school and classroom categories, the total number of eligible problems completed will be divided by the total number of students in each school or class as of their entry date. The contest is intended to encourage students to practice their skills and retain their knowledge in the summertime. Any practice that does not conform to the spirit of the contest will be eliminated at IXL’s discretion.
Prizes: Winners will be posted on IXL’s Facebook page and official blog on August 1, 2014. Each winning school will receive a $500 gift card. Each winning classroom will receive a pizza party ($250 gift card). Each winning individual will receive an Android tablet.
