My name is Erin Greenman — I work for Fleishman-Hillard on behalf of our client, Lands’ End. A few weeks back, I noticed your post regarding the teacher that hid the student’s desks, only to have soldiers bring them back in later on to illustrate her point of where our freedom came from. It was a very moving story and I thought you and your readers may be interested in how Lands’ End is encouraging people all over to recognize exceptional teachers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I hope you will be able to post the contest information on your blog for your readers. If you have any questions regarding specifics of the contest, please feel free to contact me.
