The GVC vision is to empower, enable, and connect students around the world using Internet technology.

Teacher and students must be willing to make a serious commitment to collaborating with their partner schools for the duration of the project. Emphasis is on teamwork across cultural and geographic distances, which is much harder than working together in the same room.

The GVC is sponsored by Give Something Back International Foundation
Remove classroom walls to open students to the World!

What is this contest?
In our web contest, three schools are teamed by GVC into a single team. That team works together to create a website about a world issue that they have chosen collaboratively. This is a full year commitment. Schools need strong collaboration skills, as the 3 schools in each team are separated geographically, but need to work together as one.

Who may participate?
Teacher guided Primary (Grades 1-7) and Secondary (Grades 8-12, or equivalent) classes and youth groups around the world that have access to the Internet and who know or can learn to use Google Sites.
