Yesterday was a big day in my family, as my five year old son started kindergarten. He has been waiting for this day to come for a long time, and it was one happy and proud boy that I picked up in the afternoon. It looks like both of my sons have gotten great teachers this year, and as most parents know good teachers can mean a world of difference in a child’s education. Del Monte is celebrating the fantastic teachers in our schools with the great Del Monte Teacher Monday
: Cash For Teachers promotion.
About the Del Monte Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms promotion
This fall Del Monte will hold its second annual online contest, “Teacher
Monday: Cash for Classrooms.” The program awards cash and fresh fruit to
kindergarten thru 12th grade school teachers across North America to encourage them to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities.
Sixty teachers will win a total of $1,000 in cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit for their students. Top winners will also get a Del Monte Fresh Field Day event for their school in which the entire student body will enjoy a day of Del Monte fresh fruit, games and fun activities. Salad bars for schools will also be given away through promotions at supermarkets.
Frugality Is Free has teamed up with Del Monte on a Del Monte giveaway here at Frugality Is Free for the second year. Three readers will each win a total of $25 in Del Monte Gift Certificates to be used towards fresh Del Monte fruit and vegetables (5 x $5 Gift Cards that will scan like a coupon). One of the winners will additionally win a backpack full of school supplies. The winner of the backpack is encouraged to share the school supplies with a teacher in his or her community.
Three (3) readers will each win a total of $25 in Del Monte Gift Certificates, and the first winner drawn will also win a back pack filled with school supplies.
