K12NN is participating in Del Monte’s free giveaway of fresh fruit! Thanks to Del Monte, I’ll be giving away 3 sets of $25 gift certificates to parents and teachers all through September and into October as well.
The 50th commenter to this post will get a $25 in gift certificates to purchase Del Monte whole fresh fruit at the supermarket. The deadline for this giveaway is Monday, September 26, 2011, midnight Pacific Time or until 50 comments are reached. You may leave more than one comment but they cannot be added consecutively (i.e., 2 – 50 comments in a row). Spam comments will be disqualified. Provide your name and a valid email address with your comment.
Good luck! And follow after the jump to see about a contest where classes can win cash, the whole school could win fresh fruit and salad bars for the day, or school supplies. Teachers — sign up with Del Monte now! Moms, let your kids’ teachers know they could win incredible healthy snacks and prizes for the whole school if they register their classes by September 26, 2011!
“Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” is a Del Monte program that awards cash, fresh fruit, and salads to kindergarten thru 12th grade school teachers across North America to encourage them to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities. This contest starts September 26, 2011.
Here’s how it works: teachers, sign up your class at the link below. Then come back here and in the comments, let us know the link where supporters can vote for your class. At the end of the week, I’ll pick a teacher’s link at random and award them an extra $25 in Del Monte coupons. Each week votes are wiped out and voting begins again so teachers have six weeks to try to win.
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.
Here are some notes on eligibility from the official Del Monte contest website:
