Here's what one of last year's Grand Prize winners said about the Follett Challenge:
"Winning this makes us realize that we are going in the right direction, and it's been inspiring. Teachers come to me with a need and I get to say, 'Yes, we can order what you need from Follett' – it's really lifted the morale around here. It's been great for the kids, and every teacher is thrilled and inspired. I'd tell everyone who's doing something innovative to apply for the Follett Challenge. We are small, and really didn't think we'd win. We didn't have the money or the resources that some wealthy schools have. But we won!" – Patrice Bryan, Maplewood Richmond Heights High School
