Favorite teacher contest


Is there a teacher who has made a profound difference in the life of a child? Scholastic.com is collecting stories or tributes about favorite teachers with its Nominate Your Favorite Teacher Contest.
The winning family and the nominated teacher each will win a trip for up to four people to the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, provided by Homewood Suites by Hilton.
The grand prize includes a four-night stay at the Hilton New York – Times Square, tickets to the parade, and a $3,500 American Express gift card which may be used toward airfare and spending money. Teacher nominations can be made at www.scholastic.com/homewood but should be submitted by July 29. Winners will be announced Sept. 9.
