MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teachers across the United States have less than a month left to enter the Orange Julius® Treat for Teachers essay contest, presented by Orange Julius at DQ®. The deadline for entering is Sunday, Sept. 22.
The Dairy Queen® system knows that throughout the school year, teachers could spend upwards of $1,500 of their own money to purchase educational supplies for their students. To help teachers ease that financial burden, the DQ system has launched the Orange Julius Treat for Teachers essay contest to give teachers an opportunity to receive funding for classroom supplies.
Teachers can log on to www.OrangeJuliusTreatforTeachers.com until Sunday, September 22 to submit an essay in 149 words or less on why their classroom deserves new supplies for the 2013-2014 school year.
Ten grand-prize winners will be awarded a $1,490 gift card for classroom supplies and another 100 teachers will receive a $149 gift card to an office supply retailer. The Orange Julius Treat for Teachers entry form and complete rules are available at www.OrangeJuliusTreatforTeachers.com.
Entries will be judged on content, essay development/organization, relevance to theme and creativity/originality.
