Rate the Commencement Challenge Finalists
As part of the Race to the Top Commencement Challenge, public high schools from all over the country submitted an application to have President Obama speak at their 2011 commencement. We’ve narrowed down the schools to six finalists, and now it’s your turn to help decide who will get to have President Obama as their commencement speaker. You can review and rate each school on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest) before 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight. Visit: WhiteHouse.gov/Commencement to weigh in.
Your 2010 Taxpayer Receipt
In his State of the Union Address, President Obama promised that this year, for the first time ever, American taxpayers would be able to go online and see exactly how their Federal tax dollars are spent. Just enter a few pieces of information about your taxes, and the taxpayer receipt will give you a breakdown of how your tax dollars are spent on priorities like education, veteran’s benefits, or health care.

This month we launched the official White House app for the Android operating system.
