Three Days Left to Rate the Commencement Challenge Finalists
11:07 AM EST
Have you rated the six finalists in the Race to the Top Commencement Challenge yet?
Thousands of Americans have already weighed in, but if you haven’t yet, head over to WhiteHouse.gov/Commencement now to tell us what you think. Each school produced a short video with help from the Get Schooled Foundation and wrote an essay explaining why their school should win.
Check out some highlights from the videos then submit your ratings for each school.
As part of the Commencement Challenge, public high schools around the country submitted an application earlier this year that described how their school is preparing students for college and a career. We’ve narrowed down the schools to six finalists and now it’s your turn to weigh in. You can review and rate each school on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest) before Friday April 29 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Your ratings will help us narrow down the pool to three finalists and President Obama will select the winning school from one of these three.
