Stride Competitions and Contests
As a lifelong learning company, Stride is committed to offering students new ways to challenge themselves—and win great prizes in the process! Stride Competitions and Contests encourage students to tap into their creativity, resourcefulness, and imagination. What better way to showcase your skills and your willingness to try new things?
Stride Competitions spotlight student talent and creativity on a national stage. Participating students can meet peers with similar interests from across the country, connect with professional judges, and win great prizes including trips to Stride headquarters just outside Washington, DC. Plus, these competitions aren’t just for students enrolled in Stride K12-powered schools—all school-aged students across the U.S. who meet eligibility guidelines can participate and submit. Each competition includes different levels of prizes and culminates in a national winner.
Calling Student Photographers, Take Your Best Shot!
This year’s Stride National Photography Competition is all about community. Any eligible student in grades K–12 nationwide can share their art with professional photographer judges and submit for a chance to win great prizes.
Our communities have a big impact on each one of us. Whether it be your school, your neighborhood, or your whole city, we want to know more about what makes your community special. Learn more and submit your photo by October 29, 2021 for a chance to win.
How Would You Save the Planet?
Innovation is about big ideas, creativity, and problem-solving. High school students across the country are invited to ignite their innovation for a chance to win great prizes and a to kick-start their planet-saving ideas. This fall, Stride and The Nature Conservancy encourage students in grades 9–12 to solve some of our planet’s most pressing environmental issues in the Innovation Challenge. The theme is My Planet, My Neighborhood, and asks students to think big and share their solution to an environmental issue.
