Local Business Offers Teachers Up to $12,000 in School Supplies

HotChalk, a technology education company based in Campbell aims at helping teachers out with basic day-to-day supplies.

Every year, teachers prep their classrooms for a new group of students.

According to the National School Supply and Equipment Association, educators spent an average of $826 for supplies out of their own pocket.

Campbell-based HotChalk is aiming at making that number smaller for teachers with its first online giveaway: Teacher’s Back to School Supplies Contest.

"To celebrate a new school year we have a new contest to help teachers with classroom supplies," said Teresa Ruiz, HotChalk Social Media & Web Outreach Manager."

The education company joined efforts with Really Good Stuff, an online store for creative and teaching tools, to give away more than $12,000 in classroom supplies to teachers. The first 1,000 teachers entering the contest will automatically received a $10 coupon to use in the Really Good Stuff store and 10 teachers will receive a $250 coupon.

Parents and other education professionals can also enter. The deadline to enter is Oct. 12. Details on the contest are found below.

"The contest is nation-wide but it would be great to have our local teachers have a strong showing," Ruiz said.
