Follett Challenge Selection Process

The Follett Challenge team of judges examines all submissions and determines which stand above the rest. But that's only part of the final score - the rest is based on the number of votes your video receives. Thirteen prizes will be awarded and are broken down into:


  • Ten People's Choice Winners: To help you get the word out about your incredible program, we will reward the 10 videos that receive the most votes with $8,000 in Follett products and services.
  • Three Semi-Finalists: In addition, three Semi-Finalists will be chosen - one in the elementary, middle and high school category - will be chosen and receive $30,000 in Follett products and services. Those scores are determined by the judges' rubric (80% of overall score) and the number of votes received (20% of overall score). Semi-Finalists are not eligible for the People's Choice award, even if they have the highest number of votes.
  • One Grand Prize Winner: Out of the three Semi-Finalists, a Grand-Prize winner will be selected from the judges' rubric score alone to receive an additional $30,000, for a total of $60,000 in Follett Products and services.
