Teachers are among the most important people in our children’s lives. Every year, thousands of Virginia teachers spend countless hours, in and out of the classroom, making sure our children have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
Anyone who knows a teacher will tell you that they don’t do it for the money. In fact, according to the National Education Association, the average starting salary for a teacher is just $38,617. Yet, most teachers spend nearly $500 per year, of their own money, to purchase school supplies for their classrooms. That dedication was the inspiration for this contest and it’s why we’re donating $2,000 worth of gift cards to this cause.
If you’re a Virginia teacher, or you know someone who is, simply click the button below for a chance to win one of (20) $100 gift cards to help you with this year’s school supplies! All of our winners will be posted here at the end of the contest. For more information, please visit our Official Rules page.
