Today is the last Monday of the Summer and the first Monday of the 2011-2012 school year for Texas area teachers. I’ve spoken with friends of mine who work for the school district and everyone is beyond excited about the new school year, including yours truly. With that said, I’m also excited to be partnering with big brands to help teachers with supplies, books, and encouragement for the upcoming year, such as Del Monte. This fall Del Monte Fresh will hold its second annual online contest, “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” Teachers can win cash and supplies for the classroom and YOU can win a great prize pack to share with YOUR teacher right here at Momma Findings.
The program awards cash and fresh fruit to kindergarten thru 12th grade school teachers across North America to encourage them to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities. Sixty teachers will win a total of $1,000 in cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit for their students. Top winners will also get a Del Monte Fresh Field Day event for their school in which the entire student body will enjoy a day of Del Monte fresh fruit, games and fun activities. Salad bars for schools will also be given away through promotions at supermarkets. Go to www.fruits.com today for details.
To be eligible to win, teachers must register for “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest at www.fruits.com then encourage all their fans to vote for them online. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for six consecutive weeks in October and November 2011. Winners are based solely on the number of votes they receive. Winning teachers will receive $750 in cash to purchase school supplies and $250 in Del Monte fresh fruit coupons for classroom snacks and to use in fruit educational activities.
I’m so excited to be able to help families and teachers this year with this giveaway and more to come throughout the week. Three lucky winners will be picked for:
1 Grand Prize: Backpack full of school supplies to share with the teachers in your school and $25 in Del Monte fresh fruit coupons to purchase your favorite fruits for the classroom or first day of school.
2 Runner Up Prizes: Two winners will receive $25 in Del Monte coupons.
I want to know who you would share the supplies and coupons with and why. Do you have a favorite teacher in your life that has made an impact on your kids? Have neighbors or friends who are teachers?
