Help Encourage Student Engagement via the Arnold Hoskin: Excitement for EDU Award
In November of 2020, Education Couture launched the Arnold Hoskin: Excitement for EDU Award. This award was created with the purpose of engaging and encouraging Chicago Public Schools students via the LuxLearner LeaderBoard Challenge, a gamification challenge in which active student participants can monetize their hard work in their education.
In December of 2020, we piloted a soft launch of the LuxLearner Leaderboard Challenge, awarding 32 students a total of $2,250. Given this award was created in the legacy of a life-long learner Arnold Hoskin, who was born and raised in Englewood--these prizes went directly to students residing in that neighborhood. Additionally, we sparked engagement amongst students, school staff, and parents/guardians with over 225 responses.
Education Couture has recently restarted the initiative for Quarter 3. We expanded the number of prizes and the number of schools participating. The goal is to provide this award quarterly, and with your generosity we will be able to make this an ongoing student engagement drive
