Are you a parent who can think of something your child’s school could use? Could you describe it in 50 to 200 words?
Then you have a chance to win $4,000 for your school in the Frigo® Cheese Heads® Build a Bright Future Promotion.
The promotion entry period runs now through Sept. 30, 2014. Five schools will be awarded a $4,000 prize to be used toward the purchase of an enhancement for the school. Parents, teachers, and adults over 21 years old can nominate a school with a short essay of between 50 and 200 words that creatively describes something that would benefit students.
The trick is to nominate a school with an idea that is interesting and also feasible with the $4,000 prize.
The nomination period ends Sept. 30. Judges will select 10 entries as finalists. The public will have an opportunity to vote on the finalists on Frigo Cheese Heads’ Facebook from Oct. 13 through Oct. 31. Winners will be announced in mid-November. In addition to five schools winning $4,000, an additional five schools will win $1,000 prizes.
So put on those thinking caps and get creative! Tell your friends and other parents about this promotion because the more nominations a school receives, the better a chance it has at winning. You could turn an idea into a reality for your child’s school!
