#HowMuch Teacher Story Contest

Teachers! As Teacher Appreciation Week approaches, Kids In Need Foundation wants to thank you for all you do to help students thrive.

We’re looking for your stories about #HowMuch Kids In Need Foundation school supplies helped you make an impact in the lives of students. We know that when kids have the school supplies they need to learn, the sky is the limit!

We are looking for specific examples of how the supplies you received from us or one of our programs made an impact. Tell us a meaningful story about one student, or even a story about the entire community. At the heart of your story must be Kids In Need Foundation school supplies.

One GRAND PRIZE winner will receive a trip for two to the Kids In Need Foundation Night Of A Billion Stars gala in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 6.

Three FIRST PLACE winners will receive a Teacher Toolkit containing $500 worth of school supplies for your classroom.

The first 1,000 qualifying entrants will receive a $10 gift card from JOANN, sent electronically to you.

Winners will be announced the first day of Teacher Appreciation Week, on May 7!

Entries will be judged on meaningfulness of impact, clarity of thought, specificity of impact described, grammar, and spelling. All examples must include Kids In Need Foundation, and be a minimum of 300 words. Read the full terms and conditions here

Get your entry in before the contest closes at 12:00pm CDT, Friday, April 27th.

We cannot wait to read your heartwarming stories!
