Ideas traveling at the speed of light
On May 22, we launched our Teachers Giveaway campaign. The Teachers Giveaway was a photo contest where teachers across the United States were offered the opportunity to submit a photo of their classroom and share it on social media to earn votes in order to win one of 20 free Light Frames from Green Light Innovations.
Green Light Innovations has always put a lot of stock in this country’s educators. Teachers in the United States are consistently underpaid, overworked, and under-appreciated. Additionally, the average American teacher spends over $500 per year to stock his or her classroom with supplies. For these reasons, Green Light wanted to brainstorm a campaign that would not only recognize teachers for their hard work, but would also thank them by giving away a free product.
The Green Light Innovations Light Frame is the perfect product to add to any classroom. The write on, wipe off board allows teachers to post announcements, reminders, and daily messages for their class. It can be used for open houses, book fairs, and other special events. The bright LED message board illuminates a message to capture the attention of students, administrators, and parents.
We recruited four bloggers to help us in our efforts. Bloggers have made a huge effort to not only demonstrate the hard work that goes into teaching, but also providing resources to teachers to make their jobs easier. The bloggers at Little Kinder Warriors, First Grade Brain, Surfing through Second, and Laugh Eat Learn blew us away with their efforts to promote the Teachers Campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. They created content using the Green Light Innovations Light Frame, and shared it with their vast networks of teachers, encouraging them to enter the Teachers Giveaway.
After ten days of the contest, we had over one hundred and forty teachers submit photos of their classrooms. Teachers from all over the nation submitted photos and shared their photos on social media. The top twenty submissions with the most votes were selected to win the Green Light Innovations Light Frame. Some of our top performers garnered over 800 votes, and the photos we received were incredible. Our submissions included jungle themed classrooms, space themed classrooms, classrooms with innovative storage solutions, and student learning centers.
We are so excited to be shipping Green Light Innovations Light Frames to twenty deserving winners. We hope the teachers that won Light Frames will use them often in their classrooms, but even more so we hope that they feel a little bit more appreciated for the work that they do everyday. Green Light Innovations cannot wait to partner with the education community in the future and we look forward to offering more promotions to our country’s educators soon.
