Eating fruits and vegetables are the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Education plays a key role in encouraging children to eat healthier. Del Monte is supporting teachers again this year with their Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms contest! In addition to the contest, Del Monte is sponsoring a giveaway on Smart Cents Mom.
The online Del Monte “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” contest 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.
If you are a teacher, you can register online today or encourage your child's teacher to register to win. You can find out more on their Facebook page or check out the cute video below.
** Thanks to Del Monte for sponsoring the giveaway. I did receive Del Monte Produce coupons for this post. Like always, my opinions and my thoughts are my own.**
One Grand Prize winner will receive a backpack of school supplies and 5 coupons for $5 off any Del Monte produce. The grand prize winner is encouraged to donate the backpack of school supplies to a teacher or school. Two more winners will receive 5 coupons for $5 off Del Monte produce. Hurray, free fruits and veggies!
