This list of over 100 activities and competitions for high school students should serve as a great resource during the current environment and beyond. This is an excellent addition to a number of programs, organizations and opportunities that we have in our Eduniverse tab which will also be updated over the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for new opportunities there.

Thanks to Sean and his team here at RoundPier for putting this together!

If you are running or planning to start an organization, company or project you can now create organization profile on RoundPier!

To create an organization:

1. Go to main page and choose organization account when you sign up (logout of your individual account)
2. When you create an organization profile make sure to specify "student organization" and include description, tags etc
3. Make sure you add members to your organizations (when you have your individual profiles include your organization i.e. Founder @ [your organization] etc.)
4. You can post jobs and volunteering opportunities on your organization page that will be seen by other students
5. Add content to the "Updates" section to show your progress
6. Once registered fill out the form to pre-qualify your organization which will allow your posts and jobs/opportunities to be seen by the everyone in the RP community; posting in Groups will only reach students who are part of those Groups (please don't spam)
7. If your organization is already operating with existing active projects and you want it to be verified make sure to do all of the above as well and request verification in the form.

Verified organizations are invited to RoundPier Student Coalition which provides a lot of support through marketing, recruitment and other opportunities to help you expand your organization.

RoundPier’s @Tanya Manoj had the opportunity to interview Dr. Scott Cascone, Superintendent of Schools for the West Orange School District in New Jersey. Some great advice and insights for both students and teachers encouraging them to work together in the current environment.

Survey Results - Online Learning During COVID-19

Thank you to everyone who submitted their feedback. We will be sharing these with Principals, Teachers & University Deans. This survey goes hand in hand with the article written by @Alex Wang that takes a deeper look at how online learning formats are being used (or not) around the world. If you have more to add, or ideas on how to make things better, let us know so that we can help facilitate a solution.


Special thanks to @Olivia Howell and @Alex Wang

Hey RoundPier Team, me and my friends have created a group recently and are wondering when the RP team will join our group to provide additional guidance and answer any questions.
Hi RoundPier Team! Thank you for this opportunity. Could you please join our group to provide additional guidance and answer any question? thank you!
Hi RoundPier team, I was wondering how do we know if this competition is full or not? (6. Maximum number of participating teams: 25.)
Show replies
We are closing registration today as we have reached 25 team limit - if you have registered we will join your Group and provide more guidance on the presentation etc
RoundPier Team, what if my group was just created today, will that still count?

Amazing Varshini! I started a similar startup last year, unfortunately, I was unable to reach many refugees. Amazing to see others furthering much-needed solutions for refugees!
@Varshini Ganesh great initiative and something that is definitely needed. This can be scaled beyond US as well as refugee issue is still a big topic in Germany and many other countries. In fact, education is key to assimilating them into local communities.
