Big Lots invites the public to vote in Lots2Give Video Contest
Submitted By Tracey Willmott
To enter the Big Lots Lots2Give contest, schools were asked to submit a 90-second video and a brief essay on why their school could use some additional financial support. The public is invited to view videos submitted by participating schools at www.biglots.com/lots2give and vote for their favorite.
Of the 186 schools that submitted videos, three Hayward schools - Cesar Chavez Middle School, Hayward, Cherryland Elementary School, and Eden Gardens Elementary School - are hoping to be one of the 37 lucky winners. One $20,000 grand prize, two $10,000 first-place prizes, four $5,000 second-place prizes and thirty - $2,000 third-place prizes will be awarded.
Voting ends July 7 at 11:59 p.m. (EDT). Videos can be viewed and votes cast at: www.biglots.com/lots2give. Individuals can cast three votes per person, per day; winners will be announced on August 10 - Big Lots Teacher Appreciation Day.
Along with the Lots2Give video contest, participating schools will be recipients of an in-store donation program. Now through July 7, customers can donate $1 or $5 at participating Big Lots stores. One hundred percent of donations will go to participating schools.
