Robbie A. and Zulieka R. participated in the Best Buy Challenge, powered by Chicago City of Learning. They completed online activities from the playlist for grades K-8, were entered into a raffle, and won laptop computers, courtesy of Best Buy! Geek Squad's Patricia Harris presented the cool tech prizes to them at Destination: Chicago - Winter Break.
"My son participated in the Hour of Code (with DePaul University's Digital Youth Network) during a school field trip, and I was lucky enough to be a chaperone on that trip," said Robbie's dad, Rob. "One of the volunteers mentioned the Best Buy Challenge. Robbie started an account right then and there and really enjoyed it! (CCOL) is a great resource that I wish more people knew about!"
"Zulieka had a blast participating in the Best Buy Challenge," said her father, Chris. "She was shocked to win and is thoroughly please with her prize!"
