TeacherLists.com Honors Educators with a Nationwide Teachers Lounge Makeover Contest

One winner will be chosen to receive $5,000 in cash to makeover their school’s teachers lounge

Wrentham, MA (July 31, 2013) – To give teachers a chance to revamp their shared workspace, TeacherLists.com – the largest and fastest-growing free online service for posting and sharing school supply lists and teacher wish lists with parents –  has launched a nationwide Teachers Lounge Makeover Contest. The contest will reward the winning school with $5,000 in cash to completely redecorate and reorganize the teachers lounge for utility and comfort. The contest ends August 31, 2013. 

To enter the contest, schools (teachers, office staff or parent volunteers) just need to post 20 of their 2013 school supply lists or teacher wish lists to the site before the August 31st deadline. And every qualifying school will also be eligible for a free “School Supply Stash” containing $125 worth of school supplies, while supplies last, from TeacherLists.com sponsors. 

“We love to thank teachers and schools for all the hard work they do,” said Tim Sullivan, founder of TeacherLists.com. “Our site is all about making back-to-school easier for parents and teachers and school staff, so supporting the school with a brand new, relaxing staff lounge is a natural fit for us.”

The TeacherLists.com concept is simple – making the traditional school supply list and teacher wish list processes easier for all involved. Teachers, school staff members and parent volunteers use the service to post their school supply and teacher wish lists.  And then parents can easily find those lists to support their children and their children’s teachers all year long. Lists can be printed easily, emailed and even shared on school and teacher Facebook and Twitter accounts. 

Parents even have the option of viewing lists on a smartphone or tablet right in stores, adding a convenient and “green” element to back-to-school shopping for the first time. Parents using the site can also take advantage of coupons and discount offers on popular supplies and from key retailers available on the Teacherlists.com website.

Launched in 2012, TeacherLists.com already boasts – by far – the largest database available of current school supply and teacher wish lists, with lists from more than 250,000 classrooms and more than 20,000 schools (from all 50 states) live on the site. Teachers and schools that get active with the site – by posting their lists and sharing those lists with parents using the site’s sharing tools – earn free bonus supplies from TeacherLists.com’s growing sponsor list . Elmer’s glue, Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes, Dixie®, Westcott® Scissors, Kleenex® Brand tissues, Mead® and Five Star® are all sponsors of the growing back-to-school solution.  

The site is taking an annual chore for every parent – finding those lists and getting the supplies their children need – and making it easier for all.
