Along with 1D, R&B singer Ciara and Rise of the Guardians star Chris Pine have joined forces with Get Schooled to promote their Fall Attendance Challenge.  The competition, which has reached more than 215,000 students in 80 cities and 28 states, is meant to boost school engagement and attendance rates! According to a 2012 study, 7.5 million students in the US miss a whole month (or more) of school, which puts them at risk for failing and dropping out. 

So let’s talk prizes! The schools that have the most engaged students early in the competition could win a private screening of Rise of the Guardians! The school that wins the competition – the one with the highest attendance gains and the highest levels of student engagement – will win a Celebrity Principal for the Day! And, like we promised, here’s a little taste of the most glorious wake up call a Directioner could get –




Students who sign up for the wake-up call on GetSchooled.com are eligible to win a school notebook – signed by the guys of One Direction!! The challenge launched on October 1st and runs through November 30th – don’t miss out and sign up today!

So we want to know – what’s your favorite part about going to school?
