      They Took the Pledge and Won

      These 2021 and 2020 Erase-E-waste Sweepstakes winners came together as a community to protect the planet and transformed their school.

    • The Erase E-Waste Sweepstakes is brought to you by:

    • Hillcrest Academy

      Kalona, IA Prize: Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup

      For Hillcrest Academy, participating in the Erase E-waste sweepstakes helped build community and student success. In 2019, Hillcrest, a private high school in Kalona, Iowa, had extremely slow laptops and teachers and students were frustrated when using digital tools. Angela Snakenberg, Business Teacher and Technology Specialist at Hillcrest, saw a flyer for the Erase E-waste sweepstakes and decided to get her community involved. “Even if we didn’t win, holding an Erase E-Waste drive is a good motivator for everyone to clean out their old junk,” Snakenberg said. The school held a contactless recycling drive and filled up a pickup truck, trailer, and 15-passenger van without seats twice. The school was thrilled to hear they had won and chose the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup. “Everyone has a modern device they can use in class since we won the Dell Technologies Erase E-Waste Sweepstakes. We no longer worry about using technology during lessons because our Dell laptops start up right away,” said Snakenberg. The school brings its large, rolling screen monitor to help with visuals and collaborative learning at large events and have even put it in the lobby during basketball games so families can watch a livestream. With its new technology solutions, Hillcrest is boosting student engagement and showing the community what’s possible with a little digital imagination.

      • St. Anthony Catholic School

        Columbus, TX Prize: Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup

        Like many privately funded schools, St. Anthony Catholic School (SAS) struggled to procure IT solutions without increasing tuition costs. SAS, which serves 3k through 8th grade students in Columbus, Texas, had slow devices that could no longer support core software and educational apps. Some teachers did not have school-issued devices for home use, a serious issue when COVID-19 struck. When SAS learned they could win IT gear and recycle electronic waste, the Parent Teacher Committee immediately took action and managed a four-day Erase E-Waste event. SAS won the sweepstakes and chose the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup prize package and today, students can access the apps they need to boost learning. The school also rolled out a new hybrid computer lab on wheels. John O’Leary, principal at SAS, said, “Having the laptops and cart from Dell Technologies makes it possible to continue our digital curriculum and maintain social distancing.” By replacing a portable projector in the cafeteria with the new Dell Technologies interactive touch monitor, staff can gather for professional development, multiple grades can meet and share multimedia resources, and stream events. “Students’ learning curves go up when they have technologies like the devices we won through the Dell Technologies Erase E-Waste Sweepstakes. Our job is to provide the IT and guidance and then get out of the way and let them learn,” O’Leary said.

        • E.S.T.E.A.M. Academy

          Round Rock, TX Prize: Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup

          E.S.T.E.A.M. Academy needed new laptops and other IT equipment to facilitate digital learning and club activities on a limited budget. When E.S.T.E.A.M., a private K-12 micro-school located in Round Rock, Texas, found out it could win innovative gear by facilitating an e-waste recycling event, word spread fast. When COVID-19 hit, students embraced social-distancing measures and carried on with their efforts, recycling thousands of unused electronic items from the community. E.S.T.E.A.M learned it was a sweepstakes winner and chose the Anytime, Anywhere Learning Setup. “We use the Dell display as a green screen. Heroes [students] can put any background that they want on it — they can be in the Rocky Mountains or Sahara Desert — and then wear a costume to add to the realism,” said Justin Durban, E.S.T.E.A.M. enrichment guide, marketing manager and IT support specialist. Students also quickly learned to use the MakerBot 3D printer for club activities, using it to create custom propeller guards for a drone, designing keychains to sell as a fundraiser, and more. Through their efforts, E.S.T.E.A.M helped their community, solved their technology challenge, and is inspiring the imaginations of their students.
