How does it work?
Starting February 1st, teachers can earn a $100 DonorsChoose gift code by completing a Black History Month lesson from Google’s Applied Digital Skills program, and filling out a classroom rewards form. Gift codes are available while funds last.
How to qualify for the rewards
- Create your Applied Digital Skills Teacher account or sign into your existing account
- You’ll need a Gmail/Google account to get started. (Don’t have one? They’re free and easy to create!)
- Explore a Topic: Celebrate Black History
- Create a Virtual Family Reunion in Google Slides
- Create a Flyer for a Juneteenth Celebration
- Write the Lyrics to a Song
- Build a Logo to Express Who You Are

Once we review and approve your Classroom Rewards form, we’ll send you your $100 DonorsChoose gift code, while funds last. Expect to receive your gift code within two weeks of submitting the form.
Please note, you will only be able to submit this form once. Our team is unable to make any changes or edits to your responses. Once you have submitted, you will not be able to retake the survey, and our team won't be able to re-open it for you.
