CLEAR CHANNEL/MIAMI and 1-800-411-PAIN will award $11,000 grand prize to one of four teachers and their schools in both MIAMI DADE and BROWARD COUNTIES on MAY 20th. The contest began in JANUARY where people could submit to CLEAR CHANNEL/MIAMI's websites (www.939mia.com, www.1035superx.com, www.940winz.com, www.big1059.com, www.mega949.com, www.wiod.com, www.y100.com) their nomination for the best teacher in the two counties.
Submissions had to be 411 words or less. Each month, a teacher for each county was awarded $1,000 along with their respective schools. This contest ran JANUARY-APRIL with each qualifying teacher having the chance to win the grand prize in MAY of $11,000 for a teacher in each county, along with their respective schools. A total of $60,000 will be awarded to teachers and their schools for this contest.
"Being a teacher takes a special type of person -- one who has the patience, wisdom, knowledge, and passion to develop young minds and help turn them into productive members of our society. We recently learned that teachers spend an inordinate amount of their own money on supplies for their classroom. Through our partnership with 1-800-411-PAIN, we are honored to be able to give back to the most deserving teachers and their schools," said Dir./Sales LONNY ANGER.
