Join the #HowBigIsABillion Twitter Party to Learn How Illustrating a Billion Dollars Could Help You Win a Classroom Grant!

One billion dollars would fill 2,983 bathtubs, would equal the weight of 9 adult blue whales and would carpet all of downtown Chicago!

Every year, Americans leave a billion dollars on the table when they do their own taxes. That number is so huge it can be hard to visualize.

To help people understand just how much money a billion dollars really is, H&R Block has introduced its “How Big is a Billion?” contest, asking teachers to turn the idea of a billion dollars into a math assignment for their students for a chance to win a $3,000 grant. 

Through March 14, teachers are invited to submit real-life examples that illustrate the concept of a billion dollars. H&R Block and WeAreTeachers will select winners from three prize categories - Elementary School, Middle School and High School - and each level will be awarded a Grand Prize ($3,000 grant), 2nd place ($2,000 grant) and 3rd place ($1,000 grant). The first 50 entering educators will receive a $50 gift card!

The Motherhood is thrilled to team up with H&R Block for a fun Twitter party to spread the word about this creative contest to award educational grants to schools! Join us to learn about the contest, share tips on taxes and teaching kids financial responsibility, and more.

Prizes! We will be giving away five prizes to randomly selected participants who answer the trivia questions correctly. Each prize is a $200 gift card. 

No purchase necessary. Prizes are limited to U.S. participants ages 18+ only.
