Caribou in Covid: Contests are running online as usual. Check out the FAQ for further questions.

Vouchers

Were you given a Caribou Contests Voucher? It is a 10-character code, like this: 2020W4PI71.

If you have a voucher, this page is for you. If not, see the Participation Page or Register for help registering.

What is a Voucher?

A Voucher Code is not the same thing as an Access Code. An Access Code has 12 characters. Each student needs an Access Code to sign in and participate in the contests. A Voucher Code can be redeemed to obtain Access Codes.

How to Redeem a Voucher

A Voucher Code can be redeemed for individual participation (1 access code) or school-wide participation (unlimited access codes). Vouchers can only be redeemed with a Caribou Contact account, usually a teacher organizing the contests for their students.

If you are a student and you do not have a Caribou Contact yet, ask an adult (teacher, parent, tutor, school administrator) to sign up for a free Caribou Contact account to redeem the voucher for you. If your school is not already on the List of Participating Schools, the Contact can add it when they register.

To redeem the Voucher:

  1. Your Caribou Contact must Sign In
  2. On the Contact Homepage, they click on Redeem Voucher Codes
  3. The Contact must enter the code
  4. If the voucher is for single student participation, the Contact must enter the grade level
  5. The Contact clicks Submit, and then:
    1. If it is a Student Voucher, a valid Access Code will appear for the student in the Contact’s account under Display Access Codes for the grade selected.
    2. If it is a School Voucher, all Contacts at the school can now generate as many codes as they need for all grades using the tool Get Access Codes.

Where do you get a Voucher?

Vouchers can be purchased or in some cases freely obtained from our International Representatives. Sometimes Caribou Contests vouchers are given away for free as prizes at events like teacher conferences or science fairs. Contact Us if you would like to distribute vouchers at your event.
