You'll never believe what I saw while I was browsing Twitter this afternoon!

I, Val, like to pride myself on being pretty active in social media. I think it's an awesome platform that (when used for good) can truly connect a community and bring it together.

That's why I want to help the seniors in Mr. Johnson's "4th Hour" Global Issues class. Stewartville senior Sydney Nierman explained to me that they were given a challenge: score 10,000 retweets by Wednesday, May 30th. The reward? They don't have to write a four-page final... if they get all 10,000 retweets. If they get 1,000 their final is "reduced" to writing a one-page paper.

Sydney added in a tweet, "The word lazy was [added] simply to show how much seniors do not want to do a final before graduation. We have worked really hard on numerous projects and essays this year!"

These seniors (and juniors too, for that matter) have worked hard! According to Us News & World Report, Stewartville High kids passed their math and reading proficiency tests at 68% and 66% respectively.

So, can you help them? Retweet Sydney's tweet and help out! I remember being a senior who didn't want last minute finals or projects either! I'm sure you can too!
