MORRISVILLE, N.C. – Lenovo launched their Dream To DO Contest this month, giving schools across the country a chance to win a technology makeover valued at $50,000.

The contest is open to all accredited schools, grades K-8 in the United States, and runs through April 16.

On behalf of their school, parents and educators can submit drawings created by K-8 students illustrating what they want to “do” when they grow up.

Michael Schmedlen, director of worldwide education at Lenovo, said Lenovo makes the tools for those who do, and when it comes to young students, the potential for “doing” is limitless.

“Students can do anything when they put their minds to it,” said Schmedlen. “We’re powering their dreams and aspirations with the tools that allow them to achieve.”

Lenovo is also giving teachers some powerful tools to enhance learning.

Teachers can download or request by mail Lenovo’s “What Will You Do When You Grow Up?” Career Lesson Kit. Available for grades K–8, the lesson plans were developed to support Common Core state standards by grade level and include free classroom materials.

By registering for the Dream To DO Contest, participants also will automatically be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Lenovo ThinkPad X130e laptop.
