The Horace Mann Classroom Project is back!
Public school teachers can enter Facebook contest to receive classroom funding
Springfield, Ill., March 30, 2012 - Last fall, teachers across the country were excited over the Facebook contest “The Horace Mann Classroom Project,” which helped fund DonorsChoose.org classroom projects. Now, The Horace Mann Companies has launched the sequel, The Classroom Project II, providing another $50,000 of funding to classrooms.
Public school teachers interested in entering the contest can “Like” Horace Mann’s Facebook page, click on “The Classroom Project II” tab for the rules and details, and submit their classroom project for a chance to win funding.
“In our first successful Classroom Project promotion, our funding impacted over 12,000 students and their teachers,” says Pete Heckman, Horace Mann’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We were overwhelmed with so many positive responses on our Facebook page, and since our company was founded by educators for educators, we couldn’t be more proud to support the teaching community.”
From April 4 through May 23, DonorsChoose.org will randomly select projects to fund with Horace Mann’s weekly donation of $5,000. In addition, Horace Mann will have two special $5,000 drawings – May 4, the anniversary of Horace Mann’s birthday, and May 8, National Teacher Day.
