“These promotions underscore the importance of giving children the tools they need to bring their vibrant, colorful imaginations to life.”
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Just in time for back to school, ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers, the high quality, affordable, bold-colored paper parents and teachers across North America have come to rely on over the years, is launching two online campaigns: Make Something Astrobrights and Give a Brighter Year! With these, consumers will have an opportunity to win gift cards ranging from $100-$500 and one lucky winner will be awarded $30,000 in school supplies for the school of his or her choice.
According to the National Retail Federation, Americans spent 70 billion dollars on back to school and college merchandise last year; and a recent study from PriceGrabber found that 46% of consumers plan to spend even more in 2012. With school budgets decreasing every year while family spending on school supplies remains on the rise, these Astrobrights online giveaways aim to alleviate some of the monetary stress for active moms, parents, educators and one lucky school!
WIN BIG THIS SCHOOL YEAR - Now through mid-September, the Astrobrights Facebook page will be hosting two unique promotions that will give consumers an opportunity to get their creative juices flowing and make this back to school season a little brighter:
GIVE A BRIGHTER YEAR! - Help brighten up this school year by entering Astrobrights “Give a Brighter Year!” sweepstakes going on now through September 10th, 2012.

One lucky entrant will win $30,000 in school supplies for the school of his or her choice in addition to a $500 VISA gift card for themselves.
MAKE SOMETHING ASTROBRIGHTS - Astrobrights aims to put a little paper in people's pockets this school year. Visit Astrobrights Facebook page to partake in bi-weekly craft contests using Astrobrights paper now through September 9th, 2012.
