To provide a boost to educators, Wayfair Professional is accepting submissions to its second annual Dream Classroom Giveaway.
The Wayfair business-focused operation said the contest will award brand-new classroom furniture and decor to two exceptional teachers in the U.S. It will pick winners from submissions made by teachers, colleagues, administrators, students and families, as well as anyone in the local community who wants to recognize the work of a hometown educator. The contest website, https://wayfairwinaclassroom.com/to/apisX8, will accept entries through June 7.
Criteria applied in judging the Wayfair Professional’s Dream Classroom Giveaway include a teacher’s impact on a specific student, class or the community; a unique teaching approach documented with supporting examples of how it engages students; and detailed submission on how an upgraded classroom would impact student learning, engagement or otherwise positively impact the children who use it.
Contest winners will receive select products from a curated list of items provided by leading education manufacturers and suppliers, including: Children’s Factory, Jonti-Craft, Marco Group, Moore Co. and Wood Designs.
Wayfair Professional will notify the two winners of the Dream Classroom Giveaway by June 26. Prize deliveries will occur in the 2020/2021 school year or in the early fall.
“After the unexpected disruption of the 2019/2020 school year, we’re looking forward to providing two exceptional teachers with completely refreshed classrooms for the new school year, courtesy of Wayfair Professional’s Dream Classroom Giveaway,” said Margaret Lawrence, vp/Wayfair Professional. “The winning teachers will work with Wayfair Professional’s classroom experts and our leading education industry partners to design spaces that are adaptable and meet the standards of a safe and productive learning environment. While we don’t know exactly what the new school year will look like, we’re hopeful that new furnishings, storage and supplies will enhance these classrooms for years to come.”
