CLOSED Del Monte Teacher Monday Cash for Classrooms Backpack full of school supplies giveaway!


Teacher Monday Cash for Classrooms

In an effort to get school children across North America to eat healthier, Del Monte Fresh Produce is holding its second annual "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" online contest.

"Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" encourages kindergarten thru 12th grade school teachers 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. Several 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.

To be eligible to win, teachers must register online, submit a short essay on how they will incorporate healthy eating and living messages into their lesson plans, then encourage all their fans to vote for them online. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for six consecutive weeks beginning October 3, 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 fresh snacks and to use in fruit educational activities.

Winning North American schools will also be linked with schools in countries where Del Monte grows its fruit to help further the education of students by introducing them to another culture. Global schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies and improvements.

Become a fan of “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to stay informed about contest news.

The awesome Cash for Classrooms Promo team has given me the opportunity to giveaway a backpack full of school supplies!
To Enter : The first public school teacher that makes an entry comment wins! In the event a public school teacher does not make a post, I will take the first 3 non teacher entries, telling me of a classroom they know who could use the school supplies (on the promise they will be donated) and I will pick 1 winner from those 3 entries!

~The Prize~
1 lucky Winners will receive a Backpack full of school supplies

Open to US and Canada residents only please. Entries will be accepted until 3 non Teacher Entries are received or a public school Teacher makes an entry. The winner will be chosen via a random number generator and announced that same day. The winner will be notified by email and required to claim the win within 48 hours and then Del Monte will be given the info.

  1. I know a teacher named Ann who is a Head Start teacher this would come in handy

  2. I would donate to my child's school or our local girls scout school supply drive

  3. I would donate this to my cousin's public school class in Brooklyn, NY. She is a teacher in a low-income school (K-5) and I'm sure she would appreciate this for her class next year. She many times has to take money from her own pocket to buy stuff for the children. Thanks for the opportunity, but if a teacher comes on here to leave a comment, I would love for a teacher commenting herself to win! :)

  4. Darn, a day late and a dollar short~!
    I am not a teacher but would have givin it to my son's school. They are real small. Only about 45 kids total. We are struggling to stay open! Great giveaway!

  5. Where on your blog will the winner be announced?
    Have looked but can't find it?
    thanks :)
