An inspiring contest to reward your innovation.
Welcome to the annual Follett Challenge!

The Follett Challenge is an advocacy program designed to give educators a platform to share their stories of innovating ways to teach skills needed in the 21st century. Are you implementing a unique, collaborative program that engages students and teaches the four Cs? Show us!  

Through an online application process, which includes a 3 to 5-minute video about the program, submissions must demonstrate how the program is preparing students for the demands of the 21st century.

Our team of judges examines all submissions and determines which stand above the rest. But that's only part of the final score. The rest is based on the number of votes your video receives. Get your community talking!
