Earn $1K for Your H.S. with StudyBlue

StudyBlue is hoping to help you, your students, and your entire high school finish off the academic year on a high note.

The high school that has the most students sign up for a free StudyBlue account in the next 14 days will earn $1,000 cash. Not only will your students benefit from the best, free online study tools, but we’ll make a contribution to your school (or your school’s fundraising arm) and you can spend the $1,000 however you choose. Whether you need to buy more books for the library or throw an end-of-year celebration, how you spend the money is up to you and your colleagues.

If your high school has 300 students or 3,000, it can still earn the money. The high school that adds the most NEW students as a percentage of their school enrollment will win the prize. You have until Monday, April 11 (at 11:59PM CDT) for your students to sign up.

We’ll announce the winner on this blog on Tuesday, April 12th.

Again, the high school with the largest percentage of new users will earn the $1,000. And to qualify to win your school needs to get at least 50 new students. For example, if High School A has an enrollment of 1,000 and adds 100 NEW students during the promotion period, that is a new-user percentage of 10%. If High School B has an enrollment of 800 students and also adds 100 new students, that’s a new-user percentage increase of 12.5%. High School B would beat High School A, even though both schools added the same amount of NEW students during the promotion period. High School B added more new students as a % of their school’s total enrollment.

Starting later this week, we’ll post a leaderboard of the top schools; this leaderboard will appear in the “comments” section of this blog post, and we’ll update it periodically until the end of the promotion period. So you can see where your school stacks up in the race to finish first.

The StudyBlue team is looking forward to helping your students study better this Spring. Invite your students to to get signed up today. View official rules at

    4. Matt Messinger,

      We’re pleased to announce the winning H.S.! Van Meter H.S. (IA) got 43% of their student body signed up for StudyBlue, so they’ve earned the $1,000 contribution from StudyBlue!

      Hopefully, Van Meter can get 100% of their students signed up. Thanks to everyone for participating. In the end the students are winning because they have a great, free tool they can use to study better. And that, of course, is the most important thing. As always, email matt (at) studyblue (dot) com with any questions.

      Thanks for using StudyBlue!
