Nicki Minaj surprised 400 students at Collins Academy High School in Chicago last Thursday May 19th.

The Young Money rapper made the appearance as a reward to the kids for winning the Get MotivatED Challenge to improve daily attendance rates.

Nicki gave three students $10,000 college scholarships, was the teacher assistant for a freshman English class, and threw an assembly along with MTV’s Sway Calloway to honor the students and teachers for their accomplishments.
