Del Monte’s Teacher Monday Contest with Giveaway

We are huge fresh fruit and vegetable eaters around here. And I have been so blessed that Genghis is not a picky eater. He loves all fruit and vegetables just as much as we do. From snacks to dessert he will often choose fresh fruit over other sweets. And I have never seen a 5 year old devour broccoli as quickly as he does.

Del Monte has an awesome promotion going on now for teachers called ‘Teachers Monday: Class for Classrooms’. The goal of this contest is to help encourage kids to eat healthier. The promotion encourages kindergarten through 12th grade school teachers across North America to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities.

For 6 weeks this fall, 60 teachers will win cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit!
Ten schools will win a salad bar for their school and many more winners will 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!

To be eligible to win, teachers must register for “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest at www.fruits.com then encourage their fans/friends to vote for them online. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for six consecutive weeks in October and November 2011. Winners are based solely on the number of votes they receive. Winning teachers will receive $750 in cash to purchase school supplies and $250 in Del Monte fresh fruit coupons for classroom snacks and to use in fruit educational activities.

Look for “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” stickers on Del MonteÒ fresh produce such as pineapples, bananas, melons, grapes, avocados, tomatoes and fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, as well as colorful posters and other materials in produce departments.

But that is not all. Del Monte has also graciously offered a giveaway to Yellow Tennessee readers. One winner will win this backpack full of school supplies. If you are a teacher, feel free to use it in your classroom. If you are not a teacher and you win, you could donate the bag to a teacher at your local school.

And there is more. 3 winners will also receive five $5 off coupons good towards any purchase of Del Monte fruits, vegetables or fresh cut fruit.
