Helping Communities Through the Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge

A Free Opportunity to Learn and Make an Impact

The Learning A-Z Star Donation Challenge is back and better than ever. Taking place from October 9 to November 3, 2023, this free challenge provides an opportunity for teachers and students to make a life-changing impact on communities in need around the world simply by reading. 


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.
