Win Prizes This Summer with IXL’s Study in the Sun Summer Contest!

Win Prizes This Summer with IXL’s Study in the Sun Summer Contest!

May 19, 2017


At Home

Is it summer yet? If you’re looking forward to summer break, here’s one more thing to get excited about: IXL’s highly-anticipated Summer in the Sun contest! Join in on the fun and challenge yourself to keep learning even when school’s out. Winners will receive an awesome prize: an iPad mini!

Our annual Study in the Sun contest is the perfect opportunity to add IXL to your summer plans!

For every 1,000 eligible IXL questions you complete between June 1 and August 31, you will receive 1 entry into the prize drawing. IXL will use a random drawing to select 3 winners from each grade band (Pre-K-4th grade, 5th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade).

Stay informed and motivated throughout the contest by keeping an eye out for our leaderboard updates on June 30, July 28, and August 18, where we’ll give shout outs to the students with the most practice. Winners will be announced on September 8 and will be notified by email.

To enter, register here by August 31.

Check out the full contest rules and FAQs below. If you have any further questions, please email us at contests@ixl.com.

Contest Rules

Eligibility: All participating students must register online by August 31 at https://www.ixl.com/membership/usage-contest. Eligible registrations should include an accurate IXL username–IXL is not responsible for incorrect or incomplete registrations. Students must be part of an active IXL site, classroom, or family membership. Trial members will not be eligible. Students must register under the grade band that accurately reflects the grade level he/she is in for the 2017-2018 school year. Only results from one account will be tallied for each student—results from multiple accounts cannot be combined. Each participating student must have their own username.

Determination of winners: For every 1,000 eligible questions completed on IXL between June 1, 2017, at 12:01 am (PST) and August 31, 2017, at 11:59 pm (PST), each entrant will receive 1 entry into the prize drawing. IXL will use a random drawing to select 3 winners from each grade band (Pre-K-4th grade, 5th-8th grade, and 9th-12th grade). Only one prize per person will be awarded. Winners will be announced on September 8, 2017 on the IXL Blog and Facebook. Questions in all subjects on the student’s subscription will be counted. Questions completed as part of a trial will not be eligible. For students in grades PK-4, questions answered in all grade levels will be counted. For students in grades 5-8, only questions from grade 3 and above are eligible. For students in grades 9-12, only questions in grade 7 and above will be counted. Skills that are repeated after they have been mastered once during the contest period will not be counted. No more than 50 questions answered by a student in a single skill (prior to reaching a score of 100) will be eligible. This contest is intended to encourage students to practice and gain confidence in their skills. Any practice that does not conform to the spirit of the contest will be eliminated at IXL’s discretion.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the winners randomly selected rather than awarded based on the amount of practice?

We’re always impressed by the hard work and dedication students demonstrate during our Study in the Sun contest. This year, we decided to change the format so that each student receives 1 entry for every 1,000 questions completed and winners are chosen from a random drawing. This allows students who practice more to have a better chance of winning, while also giving students who are balancing IXL with other summer activities a shot at the prize. With this new format, we’re encouraging all students to learn new concepts, keep their skills fresh, and have an enjoyable summer!

How do I check the number of questions I have attempted?

Sign in to your IXL account and visit the “Usage Details” report, which can be found by clicking on the “Analytics” tab. You can also find it by visiting https://www.ixl.com/analytics/student-details. Once you reach this report, select “custom date range” and set it for June 1 and the current date. Then, select the subject(s) you practiced and set the appropriate grade levels if needed.

Are problems for all subjects counted?

Yes, practice in all subjects (math, language arts, science, and social studies) on your subscription will be counted. However, we will not count practice in subjects for which you have a trial.

Is practice counted starting June 1 or starting from when I registered?

Practice will be counted starting June 1, no matter when you registered—just make sure you register at https://www.ixl.com/membership/usage-contest by the August 31 deadline!

Will you be posting rankings so we can see where we stand in the competition?

Yes, we will be sharing leaderboards on the IXL blog (http://blog.ixl.com/) and on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/IXL) on June 30, July 28, and August 18. Since winners of the contest will be chosen by a random drawing, the leaderboards serve as a fun way to acknowledge the 20 students in each grade band who have practiced the most. Winners will be announced September 8 and will be notified by email.

Will IXL count questions for previously mastered skills?

If the skills were mastered prior to the start of the contest, students can go back and practice them again, and those questions will count toward this contest. However, after a student masters a skill during the contest period, any further practice will not count.

Will IXL count incorrectly answered questions? Will questions practiced outside of the student’s grade level be counted?

Yes and yes! We encourage students to practice above or below grade level, and we want them to know that it’s okay to make mistakes and learn from them. Up to 50 questions answered by one student in a single skill (prior to reaching a SmartScore of 100) will be counted. For students in grades PK-4, questions in all grade levels will be counted. For students in grades 5-8, only questions from grade 3 and above are counted, while students in grades 9-12 must practice in grade 7 or above.

How do I sign up multiple students or children for the contest?

To register the first student, log into your teacher or parent account and complete the registration form. To register the second student (and all subsequent students), reload the page and fill out the form for each student.
