Celebrating the back to school season, Rack Room Shoes, the footwear retailer brand headquartered in Charlotte, has come up with its second annual Real Teacher of the Year contest. To honor teachers across the nation, students can choose their favorite educators by nominating teachers who motivate and help them to nurture their goals.
The awards for the five winning schools in the online contest offers a grant of $10,000 each to be used for tech upgradation, while the teachers get free shoes for the whole year with a value of $45 for 12 months.
For the contest, students are expected to answer the question, “How does/did your favorite teacher encourage you to achieve real-life goals?” From September 3 to October 4, which is the duration of the contest, parents, guardians, PTA members and other adults who are 18 years of age and older, are encouraged to submit a video or photo, accompanied by a short paragraph, explaining why the teacher they nominated is deserving of this recognition. Entries can be submitted directly online at https://1.shortstack.com/R9Vqp4.
Jan Mauldin, Director of Corporate Marketing for Rack Room Shoes, said, “The Real Teacher of the Year Contest allows people to say thank you by recognizing teachers who have made an
influential impact in their lives. Moreover, it gives them the chance to come back to their schools in the best and unique way. Rack Room Shoes is committed to connecting with the communities we serve. We are eager to see all the wonderful teachers who are deserving of this award be highlighted in an extraordinary way.”
Voting will be open to public from October 21 to November 1 at https://1.shortstack.com/R9VVPp4, after the application deadline of October 4. Winning teachers will be notified about their achievement by Rack Room Shoes till November 18, and a grand ceremony will be held for all schools in December.
