Help Make A Classroom's Dream Come True!


Yahoo! and DonorsChoose.org have teamed up to make classroom's dreams come true! On September 13, Yahoo! surprised Lida Hooe Elementary School in Dallas by not only funding DonorsChoose.org projects for four lucky teachers, but also by giving the school more than $40,000 in digital storytelling technology.

Ron Corning, an anchor on ABC Affiliate WFAA and Yahoo!'s CMO Elisa Steele hosted a school assembly that showcased the students' videos and surprised the school with $40k in new technology and professional development.
