Students Look Forward to Helping Others During the Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge

A Free Opportunity to Learn and Make an Impact

Learning A-Z students from all over the world are saving their stars for the start of the upcoming Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge, running April 1 through May 3. 

Will your students be joining the challenge?  (Psst... there's a potential for pizza!

This challenge is free for all to participate. Learn how to  join for free if you are not already a Learning A-Z customer.


As students read and complete assignments within Kids A-Z*, the Learning A-Z student portal, they’ll earn stars that can be donated toward healthy meals, clean water, and school supplies to communities in need. Here’s the breakdown of how many stars equate to each donation type: 

Once the challenge has concluded, the top-donating classroom in each of the 50 U.S. states and D.C., as well as in five different countries, will win a class pizza party**. In addition, Learning A-Z will make a monetary donation, up to $20,000, on behalf of participating students to support a children’s humanitarian organization that works worldwide.
