Kaplan Test Prep Invites Students To “Score Against Hunger” With The United Nations World Food Programme’s Freerice.com

Building on its relationship with Freerice.com, a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) that challenges people to test their smarts with fun trivia questions while making a difference in the fight against hunger, Kaplan Test Prep has launched its “Score Against Hunger” contest. Whichever student correctly answers the most questions, on topics ranging from math to literature, between November 19 and December 19, will receive $1,000; additionally, Kaplan will make a $1,000 donation in the winner’s name to WFP. The second-place winner will receive $500 and Kaplan will make a $500 donation on her behalf to WFP.

With each question that students answer correctly, 10 grains of rice are donated to WFP to feed hungry people around the world. Earlier this year, Kaplan provided Freerice with 500 SAT questions; the questions in the contest will include questions from a variety of subjects to help students start preparing for college.

“Kaplan Test Prep is excited about its continuing work with the U.N. World Food Programme. We hope that as this holiday season begins, students will join us by participating in ‘Score Against Hunger’ and be part of our efforts to combat world hunger and promote education and college readiness in the process,” said Jieun Choe, executive director of college admissions and K-12 programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “From our experience, we know that today’s young people are looking for a way to give back and this contest provides them with a worthwhile opportunity.”

Since its creation in 2007, Freerice players have donated over 100 billion grains of rice, enough to feed five million people for a day. Often WFP is able to purchase the rice locally, cutting down on the time it takes to provide life-saving food to the hungry while also supporting local economies.

To compete in the contest, students should visit www.kaptest.com/freerice.
