For the start of this school year, Avery is currently sponsoring the Avery Celebrates Teachers Sweepstakes, which ends on September 15th, and
"honors U.S. teachers and all that they do for our children on a daily basis. Studies by the non-profit organization World Vision show that teachers spend on average at least $500 of their own money each school year on supplies for their students. This sweepstakes aims to alleviate some of this financial burden, as well as pamper a few lucky teachers. (Note: homeschooling parents are eligible to win as well!)"The Sweepstakes gives teachers a chance to win:
- One (1) grand prize package, which includes: a goodie bag of Avery products valued at $500; a SpaFinder gift card valued at $350; and a Starbucks gift card valued at $150
- Three (3) second prize packages valued at $200 each
- Five (5) third prize packages valued at $80 each
Avery is the only school and office supply manufacturer that participates in Box Tops for Education. When you purchase select Avery school supplies for the new academic year you also receive Box Tops coupons to clip and return to participating schools to be redeemed for cash. Each school then uses the cash at their discretion to purchase new supplies, fund programs, or buy much-needed equipment, computers, etc. To learn more, visit www.avery.com/btfe.
Consider nominating your teacher or homeschooling parent for these amazing prizes that will help with the costs of school supplies.
In the meantime, Avery is offering one K&K reader a gift basket full of Avery school and office supplies such as Avery NoteTabs™, Label Pads, HI-LITERS®, Glue Stics, Labels, Binders, Dividers, Markers and more—a retail value of $50.
