Has there ever been a time when teachers haven't spent their own money on their classrooms? Probably not, but in an era of slashed budgets, many teachers are reaching even deeper into their own wallets to purchase classroom supplies and teaching materials. To help you save a little dough on your classroom and yourself, we’d like to share a few teacher giveaways that are happening throughout the month of October.
5 Free Teacher Giveaways for October
Casio LampFree Projector
If your classroom is not equipped with a video projector, you might be interested in Casio’s LampFree Projector giveaway. This contest requires some legwork, but it might be worth the effort.
To enter the contest, you need to do a couple of things: First, educate your students on mercury and how it can impact human and environmental health. Second, have your students write a 300 word essay responding to, “How to reduce the hazards of mercury on a young person’s health.” Next, select the best essay and submit to Casio Education. To learn more about the contest, click here.
The contest is open to U.S. K-12 schools and ends Dec. 31, 2014.
