Børn and PlanetShoes are teaming up for an exciting contest awarding deserving Massachusetts public school teachers with a gift that anyone would want – free shoes. Beginning Monday, October 21, 2013, Børn and PlanetShoes will be asking members of all Massachusetts communities why the teachers at their school should be honored for their excellence. The winning school will be recognized in a congratulatory ceremony provided by Børn and PlanetShoes and will be awarded with a collection of Børn shoes for all staff and faculty members within their school.
“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Børn on an initiative to support local school teachers. Massachusetts is our home. Our corporate headquarters are here, so it seemed fitting to launch this contest with local school districts. We are passionate about this concept and hope to make this an ongoing project, so stay tuned for a possible grand tour!” said Phil Meynard, President of PlanetShoes.
“The impact a great teacher can make on a student’s life is significant. We want to reward them with quality, comfortable shoes to wear while they’re on their feet all day doing their important job,” said Børn’s President, Tom McClaskie, of the meaning behind the initiative.
To nominate an individual, one can submit a valid entry via PlanetShoes.com. To enter, one must provide a photo along with a piece of writing on why the faculty deserves to win free Børn shoes. The contest will launch at 10AM EST on October 21, 2013 and run through November 26, 2013. The winner will be selected by the contest hosts (Børn and PlanetShoes) and will be announced on November 27, 2013.
