Keep using Achieve3000 over your holiday break and win an iPod shuffle!

When you use the Achieve3000 program over the holiday break, you can make the break and win! Achieve3000 will be on the lookout for kids who complete at least four lessons on KidBiz3000®, TeenBiz3000®, or Empower3000™ between December 21, 2014 and January 4, 2015, and will enter them in state-wide drawings for a chance to win an iPod Shuffle. One great contest, 50+ lucky winners!

A winner will be chosen from each state and select international locations, and
that means Achieve3000 will be holding 50+ drawings for kids who meet the
4-activity goal during their holiday break. With so many prizes, you’ve got a really
good chance of winning!

Here’s how it works:

  • Complete four lessons between December 21, 2014 and January 4, 2015 with anactivity score of 75% or above. Your name will be automatically entered into your state’s drawing.
  • Double your chances! If you complete 10 lessons or more with an activity score of 75% or above during the contest timeframe, your name will be entered twice!
  • After the contest ends, drawings will be held, and a winner chosen from each state. Winners will be contacted so they can claim their iPod Shuffles.

PLEASE NOTE: Students need to complete four or more unique lessons.
Available lessons can be accessed through the My Lessons tab or the Search
tool. Students need to complete work independently
