Code.org will select one lucky classroom to attend a very special Hour of Code event in the nation’s capital — so special that all the details are under wraps! Winning students (with chaperones) will enjoy an all-expenses-covered trip to Washington, D.C. Students will participate in a full day of top-secret activities on Monday, December 8.
One lucky school in every U.S. state (+ Washington D.C.) won $10,000 worth of technology. See all 51 winners
100 lucky classrooms are invited to participate in live video Q&As with tech titans and tech-loving celebrities. Students will be able to ask questions and chat with these exciting role models to kick off your Hour of Code.

Every educator who hosts an Hour of Code for students will receive 10 GB of Dropbox space or $10 Skype credit as a thank you gift!
Sphero is the app-controlled robotic ball changing the way students learn. Powered by SPRK lessons, these round robots give kids a fun crash course in programming while sharpening their skills in math and science. Sphero is giving away 100 classroom sets – each including 5 robots. Any classroom (public or private) within the U.S. or Canada is eligible to win this prize.
If you have redeemed a 10 GB Dropbox code in the past, you can only apply your new code to a different account or choose Skype credit as your gift. Dropbox space is valid for one year after it is applied to your account.

No, unfortunately, because of logistics we are unable to offer the video chat prize to schools outside of the U.S. and Canada. All international organizers are eligible to receive Dropbox space or Skype credit.
We would love to help teachers in public and private schools alike, but at this time, it comes down to logistics. We have partnered with DonorsChoose.org to administer classroom funding prizes, which only works with public, US K-12 schools. According to DonorsChoose.org, the organization is better able to access consistent and accurate data that's available for public schools.
Due to a small full-time staff, Code.org is unable to handle the logistics of administering international prizes. Because of this people outside the US are unable to qualify for prizes.
