Students across the United States answered over 120,000 questions over 18 hours in the JogNog Digital Learning Day Challenge. The competition was fierce – with some students answering one question every seven seconds. In the end, user alkoran (student names concealed for privacy) was triumphant. This highly motivated student answered over 7,000 questions correctly in a neck-and-neck competition with students from over 250 schools across the country. Users bheds and doeadeer garnered second and third place finishes respectively. All three winners will receive a personalized JogNog poster, and alkoran, the first place winner, will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
