What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Family? Friends? The big meal you’re about to eat? Here at HMH, we’re thankful for all of that—but teachers are at the top of our list!
This Thanksgiving, we’re asking you to thank a teacher (or yourself!) by participating in one of our giveaways below. Read on for five different ways we are expressing gratitude to all of the wonderful educators out there, who are impacting lives and shaping the future every day.
1. #10FeaturedTeachers and #ShapeTheFuture GIVEAWAY
Did you know that this fall celebrities Kristin Bell and Busy Philips asked teachers to post their Amazon wishlists to Instagram and offered to get 10 lucky winners the school supplies they need? WeAreTeachers then launched its own version of the challenge. And now HMH is joining in!
We’re excited to announce that we will give 100 teachers—chosen at random—a free $50 Amazon gift card when they share their classroom needs on Instagram or Twitter. You just need to take a photo and write a short explanation—one to two sentences—about why you should be selected. Be sure to use the hashtags #10FeaturedTeachers and #ShapeTheFuture to enter. The first 10 winners will be announced by Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27, and the additional 90 will be chosen by Dec. 21, just in time for the holidays. We hope you’ll be one of the many #10FeaturedTeachers and #ShapeTheFuture!
2. READ 180 Sweepstakes
Want to bring virtual reality to your classroom for immersive storytelling? You can win an Oculus Go™, a virtual reality headset, by entering our sweepstakes.
We’re both thanking teachers for their hard work and dedication to improving students’ lives and honoring the 20th anniversary of our READ 180 program, which has been at the forefront of blended learning and reading intervention. READ 180 has touched the lives of millions of students and accelerated literacy improvement across 40,000 classrooms.
