Our 2023 School Stars contest has launched and we’re already receiving some out-of-this-world submissions. But we want to make sure that your school has a chance to win US$2,500 in content credit to add new titles to your digital library, in addition to (new this year!) 1,000 Sora wristbands to share with your stellar students!

Submissions are welcome from now until March 31. No submission is too small to be considered. Simply shout out how you’re already promoting Sora in your school in one of the below categories. 


  • Best in Visual/Virtual Display or Bulletin Board: Share your best visual or virtual Sora display! This could be anything from a compelling Zoom background, a unique bulletin board or a towering display case. 
  • Best in Social Media: Share how you promoted Sora across your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to engage your school community. 
  • Best Community Engagement: Have you spread the word about Sora beyond the classroom? Share how you’ve achieved the buy-in of your community; whether it’s through partnering with the local library (Public Library CONNECT), encouraging parent/guardian engagement, increasing faculty and administrator support, etc., we want to hear about it! 
  • Best use of Sora in the Classroom: Show us how you’ve integrated Sora into the classroom to support your learning objectives with lessons, activities or assignments. 
  • Best Student-Made Submission:  Sora’s impact on your students fuels our work. Share how your students have shown their love for Sora and spread that love to their classmates. Maybe it was a fun video, presentation or even a song! We welcome all mediums.
