Got Innovation? Nonprofit Wants to Know

By Diette Courrégé Casey — July 16, 2012 1 min read

Do you know of innovative work happening in a rural community that’s improving students’ lives? SCORE wants to know.

The State Collaborative on Reforming Education, a Tennessee-based nonprofit, launched the Rise to the Challenge Campaign last week.

The organization is asking rural communities to submit ways they’re addressing educational challenges and will post the top three submissions July 25. Readers will be able to vote on their favorite, and the winner will receive a $100 gift card to DonorsChoose.

SCORE last year published “Transforming The Rural South: A Roadmap to Improving Rural Education,” which identified ways rural communities need to adapt for students’ benefit. SCORE is encouraging submissions aligned with those methods, such as highlighting the connection between education and economic development and offering schools and districts more flexibility.

Ideas can be submitted via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook, or commenting on a blog post. Find out more here.

This campaign is one way SCORE’s Rural Education Network is trying to identify and share best practices. SCORE had a similar campaign last year that focused on identifying innovation through social media.

A version of this news article first appeared in the Rural Education blog.
