what is the million?

The Million program encourages students to be excited about their own education and work hard in class.

It connects the things they like outside of school with things they learn in school.

And it all begins with something every kid wants: a free, limited edition, personal mobile device.

Some phones will automatically have minutes added to them, while others will need students to earn the minutes.

what comes with it?

When students enter the program, they get their very own free Million cell phone and information on how to use it.

Even better, they never have to pay for anything.

There are absolutely no phone bills and the Million arrives preloaded with free minutes.

how does it work?

The Million program understands that school can be tough, but also knows the importance students place on socializing and connecting with friends. So it rewards hard work inside school with free cell phones and minutes outside of school.

The phones will be released at random to two student groups.

One group will automatically receive minutes on a regular basis. The other group will be rewarded with more minutes when they read outside of school.

The students in the second group can choose books from an approved list and take quizzes about them on a school computer.

For every 20 points they earn by passing a quiz, they receive 200 minutes. These minutes are added to their phones every two weeks while school is in session.
