Teachers are a unique breed. They work day after day to shape the minds of our youth. It is HARD work and they often do it on very limited resources. That's one of the reasons that I'm happy to share with you a contest that could make your child's classroom (or any deserving classroom that you know!) a better place.
Velcro Industries and design expert Sabrina Soto have announced the launch of the inaugural “Classroom Makeover” contest and invite educators, parents, students and friends to nominate a teacher to receive a complete classroom update and makeover. In honor of National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4-8, 2015), the company and its brand ambassador, Sabrina Soto, will select a winning classroom entry then re-design and organize that classroom by integrating VELCRO® Brand products along with other design elements.
Nominations for Pre-K through grade 12 educational rooms are open to educators, students, parents or friends and must be received by April 30, 2015. All classrooms, resource rooms or formal learning areas are eligible for submissions. Entrants must submit two (2) photos of the room with a brief reason the educator and the classroom deserve to win. The winner will be selected and announced on May 5, 2015 – official National Teacher Appreciation Day. For additional rules or to enter, please click HERE.
This partnership and contest is just one way that Velcro Industries is helping with education initiatives around the world. For more information about their commitment to social and environmental work, please click HERE.
Nominations are being accepted now so go nominate a classroom and/or teacher that you think deserves to a classroom makeover!
