#HowMuch Teacher Story Contest - Kids in Need Foundation

#HowMuch Teacher Story Contest

Want another chance to win? Join Round 2 of our #HowMuch contest and share a story about the impact of school supplies in your lives or the lives of students.


A heartfelt thank you to all the teachers who submitted entries for Round 1 of our #HowMuch Teacher Story Contest. We loved reading everyone’s stories and continue to be moved by the countless kids who need support and encouragement. The dedication that you show to your students is incredible. We look forward to sharing excerpts from your entries over the coming weeks.

And now we want to continue the #HowMuch conversation with all of you! We know each one of us has seen a student who has needed help; maybe we ourselves were that student and know first-hand the difference it makes to have a pencil or backpack of your own.

How to enter

Starting Tuesday, May 22, 2018, mention @KidsInNeed Foundation in your Facebook or Twitter posts sharing the impact school supplies have in the lives of students most in need or of teachers dedicated to helping them succeed in the classroom and in life. Be sure to include the hashtag #HowMuch and tag us @KidsInNeed so we can see your entry.

The first 600 qualifying entries will win a $10 gift card from JOANN, sent electronically to you. Only one entry allowed per person.


Congratulations to the winners from Round 1!

When families struggle financially, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2018, we directly supported more than 6 million students with new supplies.
