You might have heard that we have a variety of Middle School Resources designed to make career exploration, endorsement selection, and course planning a breeze. MiddleGalaxy and MapMyGrad are fun and easy online resources that can simplify your college and career readiness lesson plans. Now, introducing them to your classroom can qualify you to win a $50 gift card!

Register 30 new students for either MapMyGrad or MiddleGalaxy before March 31, snap a pic, share on Twitter, and you’ll be entered to win one of three $50 Amazon gift cards. If your class hasn’t used our products yet, now is the time! We challenge to you incorporate MiddleGalaxy or MapMyGrad into just one class period.

Please note, any student already registered for an account with either MiddleGalaxy or MapMyGrad will not count toward the 30 student minimum.

The Details

  • Who is eligible?

Any middle school educators who work directly with students on college and career exploration. That includes counselors, advisers, teachers, and administrators.

  • How do I enter?

Register at least 30 new students* for MiddleGalaxy or MapMyGrad. Tweet a picture of your students using our tools (you don’t need to show their faces). Tag @TexasOnCourse and your school (if applicable), and be sure to include the hashtag #MSCareerReady.

  • What is the deadline?

The last day to tweet an entry is March 31, 2019.

  • How are winners selected?

We will select three winners, based on Twitter entries, at random. If you win, we will contact you via Twitter DM in early April - so be sure you’re following @TexasOnCourse on Twitter and keep an eye on the Twitter account you use to enter the contest!

  • What is the prize?

Winners will receive a $50 Amazon gift card, as well as recognition on social media platforms and in our email newsletters, via a school profile.

We know you work hard to provide your middle school students with the best classroom experiences. Let our Middle School Resources assist you! We’re united in the goal of ensuring that every Texas student has a plan for what happens after high school.

*The fine, but important, print:

You can have 15 students register for MapMyGrad and 15 different students register for MiddleGalaxy, but it needs to be 30 students total. If a student is registered for both MapMyGrad and MiddleGalaxy, that only counts once. Students that already have an account with either MapMyGrad or MiddleGalaxy won’t count toward your entry - sorry!
