Hertz Furniture and Hygloss Products Announce Classroom Supplies Contest

November 18, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Hertz Furniture, the premier school and office furniture supplier, in collaboration with Hygloss Products, the leading source for craft supplies and teacher supplies, is announcing its latest promotion: The Classroom Supplies Contest. All K-12 teachers are invited to enter by completing an online form and writing a short paragraph on: "Why You Should Stock My Classroom Supply Closet."

The contest, which begins on November 14 and runs through December 31, 2013, is Hertz Furniture's latest initiate to give something back to teachers across America. The lucky winner will walk away with a Sandusky Lee Storage Closet valued at up to $360 from Hertz Furniture, as well as $250 worth of educational craft supplies from Hygloss Products.

According to studies conducted by the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA) and others, teachers in the United States pay for 87% of their classroom supplies from their own money, spending an average of $945 out-of-pocket annually on school supplies and instructional materials. Hertz Furniture, a longtime champion of schools and educational causes, has taken an active role in highlighting and illustrating the plight of teachers, asking pressing questions about school supply funding and identifying organizations which help fund classroom activities or which provide teacher resources at affordable prices.

The winner of the Classroom Supplies Contest can choose from over 100 Sandusky Lee storage products that are valued up to $360. Sandusky Lee products are Made in USA, are Greenguard certified and come with a 25 year warranty, exclusively from Hertz Furniture. Among the great classroom storage products to choose from is the Educational Edge Storage Cabinet, a color coordinated unit made of powder coated steel for years of classroom use. Also available are bookcases, tables, carts, computer cabinets, desks, and filing cabinets. With the extra storage space, the lucky teacher will be able to stock up on a wide range of educational and craft supplies from Hygloss Products, including specialty papers, craft kits, classroom borders, bulletin board decorations, stickers, stencils, wood craft sticks, beads, buttons, sequins and more.

"We are excited to launch the Classroom Supplies Contest in partnership with Hygloss Products," says Hertz Furniture President Saul Wagner. "The statistics regarding teachers' out-of-pocket expenditures are alarming, hence in addition to raising awareness about the issue, we wanted to show educators our appreciation by offering them a chance to win some free classroom furniture and fill up their supply closet."
