UNICEF and children

Entry phase is now closed.

What if you could witness UNICEF's work right from your own classroom?  

When you Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF this Halloween, you could win a Global Citizenship Technology Grant, enriching your classroom and bring the world to your students. Entrants will be asked to answer the question: "If you won a $1,000 technology grant, what would you do to advance global citizenship in your classroom?" Let us know how you would introduce new technology to your classroom and help your students think globally!

To be eligible to win, K-8 teachers must submit their donations before December 1, 2014. The deadline to enter is January 9, 2015. Fifteen teachers will win, and prizes will be awarded in February 2015!

Read the Official Rules.


Last year's School Challenge entrants were asked to creatively showcase how their efforts through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF embodied the spirit of Kids Helping Kids. Teachers and their students made an impact by teaching the importance of global citizenship in their schools and communities.

The five grand-prize-winning teachers traveled to Tanzania this summer to experience UNICEF's lifesaving work firsthand. Watch this incredible video to journey into the field with them and hear their reactions.

Check out the winning projects below!

"After our talent show, we calculated the final donations and realized that we raised slightly more than $600—enough to push us over the goal of $1,000."


Kathy Perkins, 5th-grade teacher, Tuscaloosa, AL

"After learning how many children around the world do not have access to sufficient food, clean water, basic medical care, and education, my 5th graders got the whole school involved."


Julie Vangroll, 5th-grade teacher, Harker Heights, TX

"I can't even begin to describe all that my class learned from this experience and how proud I am of them."


Candace Voigt, primary teacher, Lansing, MI

"Our schoolchildren and the children in my community have been given so much in the education of our hearts and what it is to be human through our community participation in UNICEF!"
