BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wayfair (NYSE:W), one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, announced today the Dream Classroom Giveaway, a contest awarding five teachers across the continental United States with brand-new classrooms. Winners will be selected based on submissions from teachers, colleagues, administrators, students and families, as well as anyone in local communities who would like to recognize the incredible work of their hometown teachers. Submissions can be made through the contest website and will be accepted starting today through April 5, 2019.
Wayfair’s business program, Wayfair Professional, is hosting the Dream Classroom Giveaway contest in partnership with leading education manufacturers and suppliers, making over classrooms that span the education spectrum from elementary through secondary schools. These partners include:
Contest winners will be able to choose products from a tailored list of items provided by these suppliers. Classroom makeovers will include new desks and chairs, storage options, marker boards, a teacher’s desk, and more, tailored to the appropriate age group, with variations based on the needs of the students and the type of classroom.
Wayfair Professional's in-house design team will select the contest winners based on the content of the essay question submissions. The winning submission will be selected based on the following criteria:
- The teacher’s impact on a specific student, class, or the community is clearly articulated with supporting examples.
- A unique teaching approach or style with supporting examples of how it engages students.
- Details on how an upgraded classroom would impact student learning, participation, and generally affect the students utilizing it.
“We’re thrilled to announce the Dream Classroom Giveaway with the support of our industry partners who are true leaders in Education furniture design and manufacturing,” said Margaret Lawrence, Vice President, Wayfair Professional. “We look forward to recognizing a group of exceptional teachers for their hard work and for inspiring their students and the broader community. Updating these classrooms with everything from collaborative spaces to flex-seating and functional storage is a small way for us to say thank you to teachers for the incredible work they do every day.”
Wayfair will contact the five winners of the Dream Classroom Giveaway by Monday, May 6, 2019. Classrooms will be updated over the summer in time for Back to School and publicly announced during that time frame.
