All advisory classes are invited to participate in the contest. The contest will take place over the course of four days. The only thing that advisory teachers have to do is play a video and provide time for students to submit and answer electronically. There is an optional activity every contest day as well. At the end of the four days, the teacher with the highest percentage of student participation will win a pizza party for their class.
