Hotline Hot Shot Contest

Enter the contest and join Homework Hotline in celebrating 20 years of helping New York State students with their homework! Submit a photo that shows how homework is important to your education. Then tell us why homework and education are important to you in 50 words or less!

You could win one of three NOOK™ e-Readers from Barnes & Noble! A first place winner will be chosen from each of the three grade groupings: 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-12th! All entries will be judged on both the photo AND answer to the question, so be creative!

Some submissions may be added to our online gallery or even seen on the air during Homework Hotline! The contest kicks-off on September 12, 2011 and ends on December 1, 2011. Winners will be announced on-air during the week of December 5, 2011.

Parental permission must be received with each submission in order to participate in the contest. One submission per child will be accepted. Click here for additional information about the Homework Hotline Hot Shot Photo Contest, including official rules and privacy information.
