Famous Footwear has just launched a Facebook contest called “Step It Up For Your School” – a national contest to inspire students to advocate for their high school to be improved. Entrants have a chance to win the $100,000 prize — $75,000 to transform their high school, and a $25,000 cash prize for the winning nominator to keep.
How It Works:
Famous Footwear Facebook fans will be able to vote once each day for their favorite essay. The high school that accumulates the highest number of votes will receive up to $75,000 towards a transformation project. The winner of the essay that receives the most votes will win a cash prize up to $25,000. For each vote cast, Famous Footwear will up $1 to the prize…up to $75,000 for the school donation and $25,000 for the individual cash prize.
The grand prize will be announced in September. You must be 13 years of age or older to participate. Get your whole school involved in this fun contest!
To promote the launch of this contest, Famous Footwear has offered one Bargain Briana reader a pair of Converse shoes. We visited a Famous Footwear store over the weekend and they have a large selection of Converse in many different designs.
I remember the first time Converse shoes were cool…back in the 80s! They are back again and cool for my kids to wear. Is cool even cool to say anymore?
If you are interested in participating in the “Step It Up For Your School” contest, you can visit Famous Footwear’s Facebook page for details on how to nominate their high school to receive a donation of up to $75,000 by writing a 250-word essay explaining how their school would use the funds.
