ClassroomsCare Program gives books to two teachers in each state

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS' CLASSROOMSCARE PROGRAM HAS ANNOUNCED TWO TEACHERS IN EACH STATE AS SWEEPSTAKES WINNERS

Two lucky teachers in each state have been chosen to receive a special prize of two hundred books each from the Scholastic Book Clubs' ClassroomsCare program. These one hundred winners will then donate one hundred of the books they receive to a local charity of their choice and keep one hundred for their own school. Winners were picked from more than 35,000 entrants in the 2010 "Care Where You Are Sweepstakes," an annual highlight of the Scholastic ClassroomsCare program, which donates more than a million books to children in need each year.

The Care Where You Are winning teachers, whose names have been posted at http://teacher.scholastic.com/clubs/contests_home.htm#tcool will receive their books by March 2011 and then can donate them to their local charity. In the past, Care Where You Are Sweepstakes winners have donated to children's hospitals, libraries, early literacy centers and many other local places that work with children in need. This year, Scholastic received more than double the number of entries from previous years.

According to Judy Newman, president of Scholastic Book Clubs, "We're so pleased that teachers are making time to help their students participate in the ClassroomsCare program. By entering the Care Where You Are Sweepstakes, teachers and their classes are showing their desire to help make a difference in their own community by reaching the people most in need of quality books."

ClassroomsCare is an annual challenge to the one million classrooms that use Scholastic Book Clubs. Participating classes read for the cause, triggering a donation of a million books from Scholastic Book Clubs to ClassroomsCare's charity partners, such as Reach Out and Read, Save the Children and The Pajama Program. Books are then donated throughout the year to kids in preschool to middle school who in many cases would not otherwise have books of their own. Since August 2010, more than 8,592,613 books were read as a result of the program in 100,000 classrooms.

By the numbers:

  • 30,127,000* - kids have read for ClassroomsCare since 2001
  • 10,000,000  - books donated to charities through ClassroomsCare
  •   1,234,580  - classrooms have participated in ClassroomsCare

  • 126,050,613 - Total Books Read because of ClassroomsCare
 *The number of kids who have read for ClassroomsCare was calculated by multiplying the number of participating classrooms by 25.

Scholastic Book Clubs is a division of Scholastic (NASDAQ: SCHL), the global children's publishing, education and media company.
