I just received this in my email:
Lands’ End is announcing the Teachers Light the Way Contest. The company will recognize outstanding teachers that have made a difference in the life of a student, a school or a community.There's no age limit, so whether you're in school or graduated years ago, you can submit a nomination, as long as that person is still teaching. (I already have someone in mind.)
But that’s not all – readers who nominate a Grand Prize winning teacher will also receive a $250 Lands’ End gift card. Readers who nominate an Honorable Mention winning teacher will get a $25 Lands End gift card.
- Forty-five (45) teachers will receive the coveted Lands’ End Lighthouse Award – representing the company’s 45-year history.
- Three (3) Grand Prize winners that will receive between $4,000-$10,000 for the teachers to split with the winning school.
- Forty-two (42) Honorable Mention winning teachers will receive a $100 Lands End gift card.
If your readers would like to recognize an extraordinary teacher or get more information, they can submit an essay up to 500 words and fill out the online entry form at www.landsend.com/teacheraward. The contest will end at midnight, April 17, 2008.
Teachers get cash and recognition, schools get cash, you get cash, and Lands' End gets free advertising. Everybody wins!
