    Exclamation I need some contest ideas.....

    As some of you know I am the boxtops for education coordinator at my daughters school. I decided today to start going to local merchants to ask for donations of anything that could be used as prizes. The first place I went to was the local dollar store....and let me tell you I hit the jackpot! The manager was SOOOOOO nice!! Thank goodness I went in my suburban because I left there with 79 balls And I'm not talking little tiny balls either. These things are the ones that are already inflated and about 10 inches big. I was so excited, but now I'm trying to come up with creative contests to do lol. I will do contests for the students that bring in the most box tops each month but I want to do other contests too. Thats where you come in b/c heaven knows bbs members have the most creative minds there are

    We always have parties for the winning classes each month. We do parties for K-2 and 3-5. We serve something you can get a boxtop off of to make it a theme. The kids really like these parties and work hard to win them. At the end of the year, the classes that had the most all year get ice creams.

    Keep your eyes open for contests through your local grocery stores. Two years ago our Safeways teamed up with General Mills to have a BoxTop contest decorating contest. We ended up winning $5,000 from the contest.

    LOL Yep. That's why I am here now, I have wrote down all the ideas from there but now I'm mooching off you guys *blushing*

    OOH miccit thanks for the themed party ideas! And so far the only promotion I have found is through Kroger. I think it ended yesterday, anyhow it was where if you bought 12 boxtops products you kroger would give you a certificate worth 100 free boxtops. I sent the letter home when the promotion started so I'm hoping parents took advantage of it.
    I am doing a popcorn party the first week of oct for the class that has raised the most boxtops but what I'm really needing are ideas for contests to use these donated things for.
    I really like the raffle idea that h2223m suggested. I know I won't have any probs getting rid of the prizes, I just didn't want to have the same kinda contest for the prizes month after month ya know. But then again this is for K-4th so these kids won't care what kinda contest it is lol. I think I'm just being too picky *blushing again* lol

    Put those balls to use! Let them dribble them for a certain length of time or something and then they can keep them.
    Be who you are and say what you feel, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Here's one that came to mind.
    Follow me;
    First make a big thermometer on a piece of paper. To do this you need to have a goal in mind. Obviously, the goal is the top of the thermometer.
    Each class has a different color line (making tic marks as the "mercury rises")
    At the end of the week, tally each classes box tops, then mark on the thermometer. Kids like to see that they are ahead of whoever. When they reach a certain mark, they all get something small -gum pieces, jacks, etc, like party favors. You can get them by the bag pretty cheap.

    Here is another idea:
    Each one that brings in say X amount of tops that week (maybe 10 or 20, depending on what your goal is)gets the "prize of the week", again, something small, maybe a bag that they can put their hand in and grab something.
    Another idea is that they can go "fish"-after bringing in Xamount of tops. Make a cardboard lake, stand it upright. Then make a pole with whatever that is stick-like, tie a piece of string to it. Put your prizes in baggies, then someone stands behind the cardboard, and "hooks something" on the end of the line.

    I hope this makes sense. I was a room mother, and then a manager of a phone room-we did this stuff all the time.
