This fall Del Monte Fresh is holding its second annual online contest, “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms.” 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.
To be eligible to win, teachers must register for “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest and 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.
Even though this contest has already started, teachers can still apply and voting starts fresh each week. So be sure to let your teachers know about this great contest
You can vote for your favorite teacher daily in Del Monte Fresh’s Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms online contest. So they can help educate kids about eating healthier.
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 fruits.com today for details.
To help spread the word about this program, Del Monte has offered a giveaway for Bargain Shopper Mom readers. Three lucky winners will each receive (5) $5 vouchers towards fresh Del Monte fruits and vegetables.
