Academic Air-wareness logoAcademic Air-wareness Balloon Contest
AA Cards Academic Air-wareness™ is a balloon contest created to raise awareness for academic issues and needs that are present across American schools.  Through its contest awarding, Academic Air-wareness restores communal hope for help and provides individual financial assistance for growing school expenses, which many school-age children face, but cannot afford.

Here Is How It Works:
AA Balloon Balloon Launch Day - Participants with age ranges from kindergarten to high school donate $1 per entry card.  Each participant’s first name only (security measure) is written on front of the entrant’s card along with a corresponding identification number and reporting instructions for those who find the card and/or deflated balloon.  The back of the card bears an insightful statistic chosen for its relativity to American academic issues/needs, especially in this time of recession.  After all entry cards are gathered, affixed to helium-filled balloons and given to contestants, a countdown will ensue for all balloons to be launched into the air simultaneously for their unchartered journeys.

AA Tracking Map Balloon Tracking - The contest spans 45 days with tracking of reported balloons.  Once a balloon is found and reported, the entrant’s identification number is updated on the map spot of the official watch map for Academic Air-wareness™ on LAF Productions, Inc.’s website.  The entrant’s balloon which travels the furthest distance and is officially reported wins!

AA Public Relations Announcement of Winners - Contest winners are announced and checks are presented.
