Six Days Left!

There are only six days left for the nation’s public high schools to submit an application for the commencement speaker of a lifetime. That’s right -- this spring President Obama will speak to the graduating class of the high school that best demonstrates how it is providing its students an excellent education that will prepare them to graduate ready for college and career choices.

You may have already heard or read about the Challenge on Discovery Education, PBS or Channel One.

GetSchooled is getting in on the action too, spreading the word through its partners like BET, MTV, TeenNick and CMT. You can also become a fan of the Race to the Top High School Commencement Challenge on Facebook.

 It’s not too late! Submit your application today and show the country – and the President -- what your school is made of.
