Teachers in South Florida have a chance to win a lot of cash for classroom supplies just in time for the new school year.
McDonald's is hosting its first annual "Cash for the Classroom" contest for teachers in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties. Three teachers will win a $1,000 prize to buy supplies for the classroom.
The fast-food chain will choose three teachers who demonstrate exceptional efforts in furthering students' education.
“We understand sometimes educators might invest their own dollars for school supplies for the programs they believe in," said Melissa Montes, local McDonald's owner. "This contest is a way to help support classrooms with the funds they need, as well as recognize the significant work these exceptional teachers do every day in our schools.”
The contest is open August 9 through September 25 to licensed teachers with kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms. The winners will be selected based on their creativity and how the teacher is making a difference in the classroom.
Submissions can be emailed to CashForClassroom@ThinkBSG.com. For more information, click here.
