Schools Can Participate January–March 2017 to Receive Fun, Educational Posters and a Chance to Win Prizes
Following the success of receiving more than 700 entries in 2015, Knouse Foods is starting the new year with its second Musselman’s® Bright Apples Sweepstakes for kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12) schools. Participating K-12 schools will receive fun, educational posters that depict famous historical figures and promote the goodness of healthy snacking with apple sauce. Knouse will include a create-your-own Bright Apples poster, new to the 2017 sweepstakes, to inspire a learning opportunity for teachers and students. To earn a bonus entry, schools may submit a photograph of their completed poster.
Sweepstakes participation requests are encouraged January 1 through March 31, 2017. When the sweeps period is finished, Knouse Foods will choose five winners from a random drawing. Each of the winning schools will receive a $500 AMEX gift card to use for school improvements and a choice of an apple tree seedling or a case of Musselman’s Squeezables.
Eligible foodservice directors, school officials and other school foodservice employees can enter the sweeps in two easy ways: by completing the online registration form or redeeming the K-12 rebate. Knouse will then send participating schools free contest posters to display. After the initial entry, schools have another chance to win by completing the custom poster and submitting a photo including their students with the poster(s) on display.
Bob Fisher, Vice President of Marketing for Knouse Foods, said, “Our Bright Apples Sweepstakes is an interactive opportunity that encourages students to learn about healthier eating habits, while teaching them fun facts about history. As we support U.S. apple growers, it is important for us to educate our future generation about where food comes from, and supporting schools’ educational efforts is a great way to fulfill that goal.”
