Participate in the 2011 Maine Rice Bowl Challenge!



This morning we received a note from the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) about an online game that is educational and socially conscious (and fun, or course!). The game, Free Rice, is a vocabulary game. For every correct answer, 10 grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Program to help end world hunger. They are looking for 1,000,000 students worldwide to join their team in the Rice Bowl Challenge. Below is their note:
"We're sponsoring an event with the World Food Programme that is challenging kids to play their online game (http://www.freerice.com/ricebowl) on our student team to raise food for the WFP and raise awareness about hunger. MLTI is sponsoring the student team, and our opposing team sponsor will be announced shortly. You can read more about this on our web site, http://www.mlti.org/ricebowl and on the http://www.Freerice.com/ricebowl. If you or your schools have connectivity to its students, we'd love to have them join our team.


Our goal is to have 100,000 Maine students participate and 1,000,000 students worldwide. Last year, 1000 Maine students raised 2.4 million grains of rice in 1 hour. How many grains of rice can we donate with a million kids?


Please spread the word! "
