'The Balancing Act' offering chance to win dream school

The Future is Now: The Dream School of the 21st Century, presented by “The Balancing Act’s” Parent Teacher Corner Series, is offering schools the educational chance to win a dream school and appear on Lifetime Television.

There are too many schools that do not have the financial means to bring the resources necessary to their student body, so “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime, in collaboration with top educational partners has decided to set out to change that.  The Dream School Challenge Contest allows anyone to enter their school and district for a chance to win educational prizes valued at more than $300,000.

Everyone can have a voice and a chance to change the lives of students in their hometown by simply casting a vote for their School and District at www.thebalancingact.com/sweepstakes.

Five schools will win $30,000 each and one school district will win $150,000 in educational tools and prizes from the producers of “The Balancing Act” and participating sponsors CurriculumLoft, KUNO, Infinite Minds, Virco, Inc., The Source for Learning, and Madcap Logic as well as a chance to appear on Lifetime Television.

The Future is Now: The Dream School of the 21st Century is a one-hour special from “The Balancing Act” that will take the viewers on a tour across America to classrooms that are already operating with interactive tools that engage today’s tech savvy student such as 1-to-1 computing, curriculum designed to enhance the brain and the newest software that maximizes technology and learning. The special airs Tuesday on Lifetime television.
