I wanted to share with you a cool contest for teachers and guess what? There’s a giveaway for you too!Right now, Del Monte Fresh Produce is hosting “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms,” an online contest where teachers in the US and Canada can win cash and fresh fruit for their classroom. I know many teachers and I know the hardships that go along with school budget costs. This would be great for so many teachers.

Check out http://www.fruit.com/ and see if a teacher you know is signed up, if not tell them about it. Here is the press release.

**DEL MONTE FRESH SUPPORTS TEACHERS WITH CASH & FRESH FRUIT IN**

“TEACHER MONDAY: CASH FOR CLASSROOMS”“TEACHER MONDAY: CASH FOR CLASSROOMS”

* Del Monte Fresh Produce, North America, Inc. announced today that it is launching a program to help support kindergarten thru 12th grade public school teachers across North and Central America with cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit in the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” campaign. One hundred prizes totaling $1,000 each will be awarded to teachers who get the most votes in the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest at www.fruits.com.*“Monday’s can be difficult for all of us, but public school teachers face even bigger challenges these days with the largest budget cuts in 30 years expected this academic year,” said Dennis Christou, Vice President, Marketing, North America for Del Monte Fresh Produce. “Larger classrooms and far less supplies are putting enormous pressure on our teachers. The “Teacher Monday” program was designed to take some of the burden off teachers, many who pay for school supplies out of their own pockets. It will also provide teachers with tools and incentives to incorporate healthy eating messages into their curriculums, giving us an opportunity to help school children eat and live healthier,” Christou added.

To be eligible to win, teachers must register for the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” online contest at www.fruits.com. After teachers register their name and school, they can get all their fans — from parents to students, to friends and family — to vote for them. Ten winners will be selected each Monday for five consecutive weeks in October/November, 2010, for a total of 50 winning teachers North American teachers. Winners are based solely on the number of votes they receive. Winning teachers will receive $750 in cash to purchase school supplies and $250 in Del Monte fresh fruit coupons for classroom snacks and to use in fruit educational activities.

In an effort to support schools in less developed countries where many Del Monte products are grown, and where classrooms are also experiencing economic disadvantages, the “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms” program will link winning U.S. classrooms with a school in Guatemala or Costa Rica. The 50 selected Central American schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies.

**Now for the giveaway! Two of my readers will receive $25.00 gift certificate for Del Monte fresh fruit.**

**To enter visit http://www.fruit.com/ and tell me what your favorite fruit is.**
