Part 1 - Earn $100 for learning about Google’s Applied Digital Skills program (no longer available as of 12/2/20)
Part 1 of this opportunity is no longer active as of 12/2/20. Part 2, listed below, is still available.
Part 2 - Earn $100 for teaching an Applied Digital Skills lesson in your classroom (no longer available as of 2/2/21)
- Complete the workshop outlined in part 1 of this Help Center.

- You’ll need a Gmail/Google account to get started. (Don't have one? They're free and easy to create!)

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.
