Taking the role as a World Education Games Ambassador so far has been fantastic! Life has been exciting from promoting the World Education Games in various types of interviews, writing different people of influence, to simply talking with students from different schools. I’m representing the World Education Games and Canada with pride and honor.
The past 2 days have been really great! I met the other 5 Canadian Ambassadors, along with their chaperones, the staff of 3P Learning, and two really inspiring speakers. The whole experience so far has been really awesome and the games haven’t even started.
So, I hope all of you who are reading this are registered and are taking advantage of the practice runs that have been put on the site just for you! Happy World Education Games
We have been riding in limos, eating at 5-star restaraunts and sleeping at the best hotel in Calgary. Meeting Paul and the other Canadian Ambassadors has been awesome. I have made some new friends and have met other awesome people such as the first person to climb Mount Everest, and a professor that almost lost his life jumping off a cliff into water.
We have already recieved a certificate for being World Education Games Ambassadors.
I think that we have already recieved a once in a lifetime experience that I will charish forever.
My name is Danielle Erb and I am a grade 8 student at Allan A. Greenleaf Elementary School in Waterdown, Ontario, Canada.
This year, I have been chosen to be one of six Ambassadors of the World Education Games 2013 (WEG). Each year, 3P Learning hosts the World Education Games, which is a global online event where students from all over the world compete in a fun and educational competition to see where their spelling, math and science skills compare to other students across the country and around the world.
WEG thinks that it is crucial for children of different ages, backgrounds and skill to compete against each other and show off their learning skills. Schools all over the world are encouraged to register for the Games, and as an Ambassador, my job is to also encourage children all over my country, Canada, to participate in the Games.
The Games are fun and give children all around the world, the chance to engage with friends and students in a fun and educational environment. Prizes are also available to those who participate and demonstrate their skills at a high level. Just think of how far our country, Canada, can get in the world of knowledge. Allowing children and students to participate in the games, it gives them a whole new perspective of fun learning within their class. As an Ambassador for WEG, my tasks and duties are to promote the Games and try to get as many schools/students as possible to register, sign-up and participate in them.
On February 6, I was flown to Calgary for the Official World Education Games Tour 2013. Videographers accompanied myself and the other five Ambassadors while we gave
brief interviews and presentations to several schools trying to promote the World Education Games and the UNICEF School-in-a-Box program. We were driven around in a luxurious limo disguised as a mini-coach bus and we were all treated like royalty for three amazing days. We conducted more interviews about the Games and two of us also did a Radio commercial about Mathletics. The itinerary was packed but we got to spend some leisure time with the other Ambassadors, too. Not only was the trip just about promoting the Games but it was fun!
We also listened to two motivational speakers which were really inspiring to everyone. The trip went fast. At the end of the trip we received a couple of great gifts from 3P
Learning (a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Official Cowboy Hat) thanking us for all the work that we had done. All of the Ambassadors got along great and afterwards plan to keep in touch. I’d like to thank 3P Learning for this amazing opportunity to represent my country for a worldwide competition. Although, I had the trip-of-a-lifetime in the past few days experiencing Calgary, I’ve also been on another once-in-a-lifetime experience that opened my eyes even bigger.
Not only are the Games about uniting the world in learning but they also ensure that students less fortunate than ourselves are given a chance to pursue an education just like us. That’s why UNICEF has partnered with the World Education Games so that schools participating in the World Education Games have the option of supporting UNICEF’s
“School-In-A-Box” program. One of the components of the World Education Games was UNICEF’s “School-In-A-Box”. Last year, my school supported the UNICEF School-In-A-Box fundraiser and raised over $600. The money is used to make education possible by providing children in needy countries with school supplies. Any school that donated a certain amount of money to that particular fundraiser was put in a worldwide draw to win an all expenses paid trip to Vietnam. The whole point of the trip was to show us how in today’s society, children are still struggling to pursue a good education and how the UNICEF funds help out the children that are in need. With such luck, it seems like we’re the farthest possible school from Vietnam, yet we got chosen for this trip of a life time. Myself and another boy, named Eoin, were the lucky ones chosen for this wonderful opportunity to represent our country, Canada on this trip of a lifetime. It has been an incredible journey that I will never forget and will treasure for the rest of my life.
I would like to thank UNICEF, World Education Games, and 3P Learning for making not one, but two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities come true for me! I will strongly encourage as many people as I can to participate in The World Education Games, and make a donation to the UNICEF “School-In-A-Box” fundraiser! I am honoured to be a Youth Ambassador for Canada! You can read about children that don’t have the same opportunities as us in a newspaper, ad or even see it on a TV commercial or program, but once you’re actually there and see everything for yourself first-hand, it really makes you appreciate what you have. It truly inspires you to help and make a difference for those less fortunate.
That’s why, this year, once again, my school will be participating in the World Education Games and will be donating to the UNICEF “School-In-A-Box” program as well…so I really hope you do too!
By competing in the World Literacy Day, the World Maths Day and the World Science Day and through fundraising, you and your school are supporting UNICEF, a very worthwhile cause.
It feels great to be helping kids that are less fortunate around the world.
Make sure you have fun and do your best
This weekend saw the first of the World Education Games “Host City” events in Sydney, with the “Love Learning Cloud”, a conceptual light and art installation to highlight both the World Education Games and our partnership with UNICEF’s “School in a Box” project. It was held in Darling Quarter this last weekend, amidst thousands of excited children and families.
It was great to see many of you there over the weekend. Thank you to the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Company and Monkey Baa Theatre for their support and generosity around hosting the event at their venue, to the talented artists and co-ordinators who made this breath-taking sight possible and to the passionate staff from 3P Learning and UNICEF.
Special thanks also to the Ministry of Clouds.
We hope that you enjoy the below video:
Hello, guys! This is Tata from Indonesia.
I’m getting very excited for the Games and am working hard this February- hope that you are too!?
As time goes on, more and more people are getting involved in the Games- making it even more exciting each year! Although I am busy with schoolwork and exams, I still spend lots of time on the World Education Games because it helps me to learn and it is fun too.
I’m in a new age category this year, which is really interesting. I have to practise and study to adapt to this new category. I have one month to adapt, and of course I am working very hard.
Good luck, guys – wishing you all the best. Keep registering and working hard, and hopefully we can break the Guinness World Record!
Hello and welcome to the World Education Games 2013!
My name is Cameron and I live in Belgrade, Serbia. I hope that you all have a great time in this year’s event. This is my sixth year doing World Maths Day and it just keeps getting better and better, especially now that there is both the World Literacy and the World Science Day events as well. I’m hoping to do well this year but as I have just moved into the 11-13 age category I will find it much tougher than last year.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be promoting this event to some very senior people here in Serbia (wait and see my posts for more). Also at my school our Student President, Tina G in Year 13 is coordinating fundraising for the UNICEF School-in-a-Box Project.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
Hi, I’m Medhini.
Wow! I am so pleased that our school..The Blijberg… has been chosen as one of the reporting schools for the World Education Games. I will keep you informed about all sorts of events. I’m very proud to have this role.
So hope you hear from me later.
Make sure you head down to the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Company home of Monkey Baa Theatre this weekend! The area is overflowing with fascination at the WEG/UNICEF Love Learning Cloud installation… definitely a spectacle that you and your family don’t want to miss!
Here are some of our Australian WEG 2013 Ambassadors having some fun at the installation yesterday- you can see why it is such a popular attraction with everyone!
Thank you to the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Company, the Ministry of Clouds & Monkey Baa for their support and generosity around hosting the event at their venue, to the talented artists and co-ordinators who made this breath-taking sight possible and to the passionate staff from 3P Learning and UNICEF who are in Darling Harbour Quarter, spreading the word about global education. Head over to take a look- they would all be happy to see you!
