Re-linking is integral to the success of any Together in Education program, and to encourage re-linking efforts, Harris Teeter launched two TIE promotions this school year: the School Linking Sweepstakes and the TIE Re-Link Sweepstakes.

As part of the School Linking Sweepstakes, Harris Teeter will automatically enter all TIE schools with at least 100 links in a monthly drawing to win either an ice cream party or a teacher appreciation day. The program ends May 31, 2014. For more information about the 2013-14 School Linking Sweepstakes, click here.

The TIE Re-Link Sweepstakes ended Nov. 5, 2013. As part of that program, every VIC household linked to a school in Harris Teeter’s Together in Education program was entered into a sweepstakes to earn $200 in Harris Teeter gift cards for themselves and $200 for the school they support. Harris Teeter held weekly drawings between Aug. 1, 2013 and Nov. 5, 2013 and awarded 14 grand prizes. Click here for a list of winners.

Harris Teeter continues to encourage active participation in its Together in Education program and looks forward to celebrating with Together in Education schools when it achieves the $20 million milestone this school year.
