Glidden® Paint Offers Colorful Makeover for One Lucky Elementary School
The Glidden brand is looking to make the lives of some lucky elementary school students a lot more colorful. The “Colorful Classrooms Contest” sponsored by the Glidden brand involves a nationwide search for the one elementary school in the most need of a complete makeover for its classroom.
Any public, private or charter elementary school can be nominated for the opportunity to be repainted and refreshed with Glidden paint. Nominations must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 28.
“The Glidden brand recognizes the difficulty that some schools face in finding funds within their operating budget to do simple maintenance-related projects like painting,” said Rob Horton, vice president of marketing for Akzo Nobel Paints LLC, the makers of Glidden paint. “That’s where we can help. We want to find the one elementary school in most need of a complete makeover and help add color to the school and the lives of its students.”
The winning school will receive a colorful makeover from AkzoNobel and its contractors with up to 200 gallons of Glidden paint. The nomination form and official rules are available at www.glidden.com/colorfulclassroomscontest.
A panel of judges will select five semifinalists on the basis of need, scope of project, potential impact on the student body, community engagement and involvement, and quality and creativity of entry. The five semifinalists’ applications will be placed on glidden.com for public voting between Oct. 8 and Oct. 26. The winner will be notified on Oct. 29.
