Education Contest: “What Will You DO When You Grow Up?”

Ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, and you are likely to get a range of inspirational and creative responses. Whether it is archeologist, astronaut, dolphin trainer, pro-baseball player, or firefighter, children provide some of the best answers to this age-old question. 

Now, with the Lenovo Dream To DO Contest, all K-8 students at schools across the United States are invited to respond to this question with the hopes of winning a $50,000 technology makeover for their school. (As the world's #1 supplier of PCs to the education market, Lenovo feels strongly about the role of technology in schools.)  By submitting a drawing and accompanying sentence of what they would like to DO when they grow up, students are automatically entered to win an extra-rugged ThinkPad X130e laptop, as well as the chance to win the grand prize tech makeover for their school. Winners will be chosen based on internet voting, which is open to students, family and friends.

Teachers are invited to download special Dream To DO class materials, which include age-appropriate lesson plans and materials to help inspire students to dream big about their futures.
