Eating healthy is so important, and is something we all need to do, but many don't do. There are way to many families that do not practice good healthy eating, which in turn teaches their children to eat unhealthy. Del Monte is leading a campaign to encourage teachers in public schools to incorporate healthy eating practices into their lesson plans and encourage children to eat better.
Del Monte is celebrating their 2nd Annual Teacher Monday Cash for Classrooms by giving away $1000 to teachers making a difference! Here is a little bit about the contest:
"Sixty teachers will win a total of $1,000 in cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit for their students. Several 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.
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 lessonplans, 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.
