The winner will receive a full year of cultural programming for his or her school

Bob's Discount Furniture, the fast-growing New England furniture retailer, is running a contest to support the fine arts and cultural arts in primary schools. "Celebrate the Arts with Bob's Discount Furniture" will sponsor one winner's school for a full school year of cultural arts assemblies. The contest runs from May 16, 2005 to June 6, 2005.

Elementary and middle school teachers, principals, PTO/PTA members, and parents may register their school for a chance to win a year's worth of cultural arts assemblies for the 2005-2006 school year by visiting a Bob's Discount Furniture store, or via the Internet at http://www.mybobs.com/celebrate_arts/. Appropriate programming and dates will be selected by the winning school and Bob's, with options such as dance, music, theatre, and story-telling that provide cultural and educational enrichment.

"Unfortunately, in many schools, the fine arts programs and cultural arts assemblies are the first target of budget cuts. For many districts, such programs have been eliminated entirely," said Cathy Poulin, Bob's public relations director. "In light of this problem, Bob's has designed a contest to help restore the arts to our schools."

"Celebrate the Arts" is part of the 2005 "Bob’s Cares" campaign, designed to focus on the needs of children and education. Building a better life for others is an important theme of Bob’s charitable work. From helping Habitat for Humanity, to construction of Liberty Safe Haven shelters for the homeless, Bob’s is a community leader. With so many needs, and so many events, Bob’s employs two full time people working continuously on charitable programs.
