Del Monte - Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms + Giveaway

As a blogger I am sent a wide array of campaign announcements and opportunities... contests included. Even though my children are not of school age yet, I remember how tight school budgets were when I was in school. Well, it seems like the almighty education dollar is stretched even tighter today. So, I am excited to bring you this great campaign. Del Monte & Cash for Classrooms are working to help a few deserving schools with money for supplies, as well as fruit for healthy choice classroom snacks. You can find out even more at This contest has been running for the past 3 weeks, and only has 2 more Mondays to go, so you will have to act fast to get in on the action. Here is a portion of the press release:
“Monday’s can be difficult for all of us, but public school teachers face even bigger challenges these days with the largest budget cuts in 30 years expected this academic year,” said Dennis Christou, Vice President, Marketing, North America for Del Monte Fresh Produce. “Larger classrooms and far less supplies are putting enormous pressure on our teachers. The “Teacher Monday” program was designed to take some of the burden off teachers, many who pay for school supplies out of their own pockets. It will also provide teachers with tools and incentives to incorporate healthy eating messages into their curriculums, giving us an opportunity to help school children eat and live healthier,” Christou added.
To be eligible to win, teachers must register for the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest at After teachers register their name and school, they can get all their fans -- from parents to students, to friends and family -- to vote for them. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for five consecutive weeks in October/November, 2010, for a total of 50 winning teachers North American teachers. 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."
