HP ruralThe Top Five entries for the HP Rural Schools Competition are in!

“The final placings will be confirmed over the next three weeks,” said HP’s Education Specialist David Farquhar, “after each school has been visited. Enjoy the creativity and innovation by these schools, and the identified need for technology assistance.”

You can view their entries here (in no particular order) at here.

The competition is in its second year and gives rural primary schools the chance to win a share of $20,000 worth of HP products and support.

Part of the programme for HP is working with the winning schools to determine their unique technology requirements – rather than a pre-determined package of devices. Five schools will be awarded the technology grants for HP product and training support, as follows:

  • 1st place: $10,000
  • 2nd place: $5,000
  • 3rd place: $2,500
  • 4th and 5th place: $1,250

Rural primary schools throughout the country, with less than 300 students, were eligible to enter the competition.
