    • For a regional contest, students will be awarded 5,000 coins each.
    • For a national contest, students will receive 10,000 coins each
  • Daily winner: printable Certificate of Achievement.
  • Top 10 student: printable Certificate of Achievement.
  • Participation reward: all students who participate in any contest will receive a special item for their Sumdog house.

How the prizes work

Student prizes

  • The printable certificates of achievement go to the top ten students in a contest.
  • Students are ranked by the number of correct answers. If students have the same number of correct answers, then they are ranked by their average answering speed.
  • To qualify for a participation reward, a student must answer 100 questions in the contest.

Class prizes

  • The overall winner is the class with the highest average number of correct answers per student.
  • The daily winner is the class with the highest average number of correct answers per student on that day. For each contest, a class can only be a daily winner once.
  • To qualify for a class prize, at least 5 students from your class must play a Sumdog game during the period for which the prize is awarded.
