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.

One winner will be chosen in each of three grade ranges. (7–8, 9–10, 11–12). Each grand-prize winner will receive a $500 Visa gift card and a $200 donation to his or her school.
