CINCINNATI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--This fall, Great American Insurance Group will help teachers enhance their classrooms with the Great American School Spectacular. Teachers can win thousands of dollars for their classrooms through a simple online submission process. Formerly known as the Great American Classroom Makeover, the contest is now in its sixth year.
“Great American Insurance Group is honored to give back to these dedicated classroom heroes.”
Last year’s grand prize winner, Mindy Shaw of Riverside Elementary in Chattaroy, WA, used the prize money to transform her school’s technology lab. More than 30 state-of-the-art computers were purchased for their technology center.
“As teachers, we are constantly asked to do more with less and we do so constantly with smiles pasted on because we love our kids and live to teach,” says Shaw. “Being part of Great American’s contest and winning the prize money for my school was life-changing.”
The winning classroom will receive $5,000 plus a matching $5,000 prize for the school. Second place is $2,500 for the classroom, $2,500 for the school; third place is $1,000 for the classroom, $1,000 for the school.
According to Mat Dutkiewicz, Executive Vice President, the Great American School Spectacular is one way that Great American’s Annuity Group supports educators. “Teachers help their students in countless ways each and every day,” he notes. “Great American Insurance Group is honored to give back to these dedicated classroom heroes.”
To enter, teachers simply need to write a few sentences about why their school is spectacular, and what the prize money would do to enhance learning, engagement and creativity in the classroom. Entries will be accepted online at www.TeachersDeserveTheBest.com through Dec. 20, 2013 and finalists will be notified in January 2014. The finalists’ entries will be posted in February 2014 and an online public vote will decide who is most deserving of the top three prizes.
