Del Monte Cash For Classrooms Giveaway

 Do you love Del Monte fruit?  Do you want to support your classroom as a parent or teacher?  Please read below to find out how Del Monte is supporting public school teachers across North America.

This fall Del Monte Fresh will hold its second annual online contest, “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms.” The program awards cash and fresh fruit to kindergarten thru 12th grade school teachers across North America to encourage them to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities.   Sixty teachers will win a total of $1,000 in cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit for their students.  Top winners will also 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.   Salad bars for schools will also be given away through promotions at supermarkets.  Go to today for details. 

Watch this entertaining video of real students at Sun City Elementary, in Bossier City, Louisiana -- one of Del Monte’s top winning schools in last year's in "Teacher Monday."   

To be eligible to win, teachers must register online, submit a short essay on how they will incorporate healthy eating and living messages into their lesson plans, then encourage all their fans to vote for them online. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for six consecutive weeks beginning October 3, 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 fresh snacks and to use in fruit educational activities.

Winning North American schools will also be linked with schools in countries where Del Monte grows its fruit to help further the education of students by introducing them to another culture. Global schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies and improvements.

My favorite DelMonte fruits are pineapples - did you know they are all supposed to be perfectly ripe when you get them at the store? No leaf plucking or knocking on fruit!
