Blog entry Student's Storm Ahead...

10 February 2011

After yesterday's blog post covering the near draw between our two Ricebowl Challenge teams, the students have pulled dramatically into the lead raising almost 1 million grains of rice in just one day.

So far the Student's Ricebowl has raised 4,331,860 grains of rice, while Drew's Ricebowl has raised 3,830,320. That brings the Ricebowl Challenge to a total of 8,162,180 grains of rice providing a days worth of meals for almost 500 people.

While both teams share an ultimate goal, to tackle global hunger, the three top players stand a chance of each winning a football signed by NFL quarterback, Drew Brees. That's to give you an extra nudge, just in case feeding the world's hungriest were not enough of an incentive!

This year the Student's Ricebowl is being lead by the Maine Learning Technology Initiative. Thank you to them and the students leading the way!
