Teachers or faculty members can go to our website to nominate their school or classroom to participate in our monthly ‘Gives Back’ contest."
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) February 2, 2010
Classroom, school and district standards are putting an increasing pressure on budget dollars many times diverting them from other important educational activities. With no guarantee on when the economy may turn around, teachers and administrators are scrambling to find ways to cut costs, yet implement valid educational activities.
Apperson Education Products, a leading test scoring solutions provider, empathizes with the education community and its current budget crisis. They know education is the foundation to each child’s success, and they want to help schools have the tools they need to achieve the highest learning potential. But instead of just giving the money away, Apperson elected to put together a program that is more fun, and will involve the entire school or district community.
“Teachers or faculty members can go to our website to nominate their school or classroom to participate in our monthly ‘Gives Back’ contest,” said Abel Garcia, Vice President of Marketing for Apperson Education Products. “If their school or classroom is chosen, we will notify them, and it will be up to them to encourage as many people as possible to go to the voting page on our website to vote for their school.”
The school with the most votes wins $1500, second-most $750, and third-most $500. The only requirement to entering the contest is the nominee must be a teacher or faculty member of the nominated school and the funds must be used for educational purposes such as: a new computer, software, an educational field trip, etc.
The nomination period for the first contest, which will take place in March, is now open. Nomination and contest periods will coincide with the traditional school in-session months.
“Schools are under financial distress and because the education market is a major contributor to our success we feel a corporate responsibility to give back to educators,” said Bill Apperson, CEO of Apperson Education Products. “This new program cannot reach all schools but we are looking forward to seeing how much of an impact this rewarding program has on the schools we can reach out to,” he concluded.
