Contest Alert!

We bet you’re gearing up for Back-to-School — at Adopt-A-Classroom, we certainly are! There are lot of great partnerships that we’re involved with across the country. It’s our hope that these programs create awareness and encourage people to support your classrooms by making donations at When we’re able to announce details about these partnerships, we’ll share them with you here at our blog.

For now, we found two contests that are not associated with Adopt-A-Classroom in any way, but we thought they might be of interest:

1. Bounty’s Art Classroom Makeover

Bounty is hosting a “Make a Clean Difference” contest that will award one school with an art classroom makeover worth $25,000 designed by a celebrity design team.

10 finalists will also be awarded with $5,000 grants to use toward transforming their school art rooms, along with a visit from the “Make-A-Messterpiece” activity bus, an experiential art studio on wheels.

You can go to for more details. Nominations will be accepted until August 9, 2010.

2. Really Good Stuff’s Classroom Makeover Contest


Teachers that are preparing their classroom for the new school year have a chance to win $100 shopping spree from Really Good Stuff. They’re in search of the most creative classroom ‘makeover’. We know that so many teachers often spend their own money to turn their classrooms into a vibrant place of learning. So in addition to using Adopt-A-Classroom as a resource to raise money for classroom supplies, this is a neat opportunity to win a little extra money.

To participate, you’ll have to post 2 photos (1 before and 1 after of your classroom) or a video to the Really Good Stuff Facebook page. You can find the rules here: The contest ends August 29, 2010.
