The program encourages students to attend school all day, every day to ensure a strong second semester and promote attendance on count day, Feb. 12.

Adrianne Collins, editor and social entrepreneur says, "This is good for our children, it instills responsibility with rewards for students with a desire to achieve."

To participate student can visit the Get Schooled website, http://www.getschooled.com and check in at their school from a desktop computer or mobile phone beginning Monday.

The winner of each round will earn a limited number of special-edition Get Schooled T-shirts. The winner across all three rounds will earn the ultimate prize of the Get Schooled event at their school.
