A Program for ALL Students

The Challenge Program, Inc. endeavors to reach all students, regardless of previous academic performance. Our purpose is to positively affect student behaviors and attitudes as well as grades. The rewards for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students are $200 financial incentives in five categories.

A Powerful Tool

The Challenge Program, Inc. is a valuable tool for educators to use to reach out to students who may need extra motivation in school.  The program is also a valuable tool for educators in fulfilling career goals and standards in education, and ongoing continuing education credits.

Easy to Implement

The Challenge Program, Inc. provides easy-to use forms, and clear guidelines and criteria for selecting the award recipients. [See Resources] TCP Representatives both in the field and in the office are available to help you implement the program in your school.

Award Recipients

In the fall and spring we will provide you with a web link to ask the award finalists to take an online survey and a separate web link for educators to easily fill out and submit the names of the award recipients. 

  • FINALISTS are drawn from students with zero “0” absences. If there are no students in a grade who have zero absences – student/s with the least number of absences in accordance with school policy should become Finalists.

    SENIORS compete from the 1st marking period to the end of the 3rd marking period.

    UNDERCLASSMEN (Juniors and Sophomores) compete from the 1st  marking period to the end of the 4th marking period.

    WINNERS should be drawn from a lottery of finalists who complete our online survey. (See “Selecting Award Winners”)
