Just got this information. I say everyone nominate their most excellent teachers!
Lands’ End is announcing the Teachers Light the Way Contest. The company will recognize outstanding teachers that have made a difference in the life of a student, a school or a community. 45 teachers will receive the coveted Lands’ End Lighthouse Award – representing the company’s 45-year history – as well as the chance to win the grand prize of $5,000 for the winning teacher and $5,000 for the nominated teachers’ school.
Lands’ End will accept nominations at www.www.landsend.com/teachers beginning March 13 through midnight April 17, 2008. If your readers would like to recognize an extraordinary teacher, they can fill out the online entry form and submit a 50 to 500 word essay.
During Teacher Appreciation Week, May 5-9, Lands’ End will recognize and award the winning 45 teachers with a Lighthouse award.
