A podcast that empowers students to deliver local news to their community. Technology to host a blog for elementary school English language learners and their families. A year-long mobile video documentary about the benefits of therapy dogs for students with special needs. 

We invite Pre-K through high school teachers and classrooms to submit their unique digital storytelling projects in need of funding. All projects that qualify for the AT&T Digital Storytelling Challenge will receive matched contributions.

These are just a few of the digital storytelling-focused projects that teachers have submitted for funding on DonorsChoose.org. The platform makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need.

At AT&T we understand the power of storytelling and how technology can bring a story to life in new and creative ways.  DonorsChoose.org knows how to make  significant impact with teachers and students. We’re proud to work with them on the first ever “AT&T Digital Storytelling Challenge Presented by DonorsChoose.org.”

Starting today, we invite Pre-K through high school teachers and classrooms to submit their unique digital storytelling projects in need of funding. All projects that qualify for the AT&T Digital Storytelling Challenge will receive matched contributions.

After March 16, DonorsChoose.org will select the 30 most innovative projects. We’ll then open those up to public voting online and via a text-to-vote campaign from mobile devices. Public voting will determine the top 10 teachers and classrooms to receive a DonorsChoose.org gift card worth at least $5,000. We hope these deserving teachers and classrooms will use the investment to bring their projects to life – impacting as many students as possible and creating a whole new generation of powerful storytellers.

To date, DonorsChoose.org has mobilized more than 3 million citizen donors, who have raised upward of $635 million in classroom project funding. This has helped make classrooms and projects more engaging for over 26 million students across the country.

To learn more, or submit a project of your own, go to DonorsChoose.org. And be sure to follow along as we document this exciting project on Facebook and Twitter @ConnectToGood and @DonorsChoose.

Let the digital storytelling begin!
