It is the end of the school year but already teachers have the next year on their mind. Education is such a huge part of kids everyday lives so why not show the gift of education by entering the VELCRO® Brand Classroom Makeover Contest for your child’s school classroom. They can come back to school in September to a new and spiffy class! Oh how the other children will be jealous!
The VELCRO® Brand and lifestyle designer Sabrina Soto are pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the VELCRO® Brand Classroom Makeover contest. In its second year, the program celebrates and honors educators and their profound impact on students by re-designing educational spaces to create well organized, inviting and inspiring places for learning.
“When we developed the Classroom Makeover program in 2015, we didn’t fully realize how impactful the program would be until nearly the entire school turned up to cheer for last year’s winner,” said Julie Barry, Director of Global Brand, Velcro Companies. “The contest became so much more than honoring one teacher – it was about celebrating the impact that school communities have on our lives. As a company, we are deeply committed to fostering education and learning and are thrilled to again host this exciting competition.”
WHAT THE MAKEOVER WILL INCLUDE:
In addition to new furniture, supplies, technology (including computers or tablets) and decorations, the makeover will feature a range of VELCRO® Brand products – a long-time favorite of educators for nearly endless applications in the classroom. This year, the winning educator’s institution will also receive a customized Reading Corner – a beautifully designed space complete with favorite books where students can build a love of reading.
“My students have benefited so much from all that VELCRO® Brand provided for us last year,” said Desiree Limkeman, 2nd Grade Teacher, College Heights Christian School and 2015 Classroom Makeover winner. “My students are able to work together well in centers by having tables instead of desks. I thank the VELCRO® Brand so much for all it provided to help make our environment a better place to learn.”
