LearningRx Presidents Day Contest
We had some great entries this year and we are so impressed by our students! Check out this video of our top 10 entries reciting the 45 US presidents while they ignore crazy distractions, from piano playing and Rubik’s Cube solving to archery and dribbling basketballs. This year’s best entrants really made the judges’ jobs difficult! Check out the video below:
“This is one of the first things we have students master in our brain training programs,” says LearningRx Chief Research and Recruitment Officer Tanya Mitchell. “It quickly strengthens long-term memory, attention and other cognitive skills, and it also gives a big boost of self-confidence. Many of these kids have struggled in school for years, so when they can quickly learn all the presidents they finally feel smart and confident, often for the first time ever.”
10-year-old Sophie Wright from Chattanooga, TN! Sophie wowed the judges with her ability to recite the presidents backwards, forwards, forwards, and backwards again – all while SKIING DOWN A MOUNTAIN!! (We’d also like to give mad props to her dad for filming her without any collisions or catastrophes!) Great job, Sophie! As our winner, Sophie will receive a GoPro Hero4 Silver. We are sure she’ll put it to good use! Check out the video here:
In second place, we have 13-year-old Harleigh Strack from El Campo, TX reciting the presidents while shooting targets with her bow and arrow. She’s a crack shot! Harleigh wil receive a Quadcopter Drone as our runner up. You can check out Harleigh’s video here:
And in third place, we have Matthew McDaniel, age 15, from Atlanta, Georgia. Matthew recites the presidents while solving a Rubiks Cube in the nick of time! Matthew will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card. Check out Matthew’s video here:
We’d like to thank all of our students again for participating in this year’s contest. We are so proud of all of you!
