Prizes for every educator - Terms and Conditions

Every educator who hosts an Hour of Code for students will receive a free 10GB of Dropbox space as a thank you gift!

Dropbox is a cloud storage service you can access from computers, tablets and smartphones. Use it to share photos with friends, collaborate on documents with a team, back up files, and more. See conditions to win below:

  • Available to organizers worldwide.
  • Prize limited to K-12 or faculty, educators for afterschool clubs, and education organizations.
  • 10GB of free space must be added to an existing Dropbox account. Sign up now, it’s free.
  • Every host must register for the Hour of Code under the "Host an Hour of Code" tab. Then, as a “school,” “teacher,” or as an “after-school club or camp."
  • If your entire school participates in the hour of code, each educator must individually register as an organizer for the Hour of Code to redeem Dropbox space. Teachers should put 0 under "estimated number of students participating" after one faculty member already registered for all students in your school.
  • You will receive an email after CSEdWeek (Dec. 9-15) with instructions on redeeming your Dropbox space with a unique code.
  • The first 100,000 organizers who register and host an Hour of Code will win (There will be plenty surplus gifts, see how many are currently organizing here).
