4 months, 1 week ago From Horace Mann
Julie Simons is the proud owner of an Apple iPad mini with Retina display thanks to Horace Mann’s “Educator iPad Attack” contest. The fifth grade teacher from Baldwin South Intermediate School in Quincy, Ill., entered the contest on Horace Mann’s Facebook page.
Educators throughout the country entered Horace Mann’s “Educator iPad Attack” from Nov. 18 through Nov. 29. To enter, educators liked Horace Mann’s Facebook page and completed the “Educator iPad Attack” entry form.
Through our partnership with DonorsChoose.org, Horace Mann has seen how much mileage a teacher can get out of a tablet in the classroom. Whether they’re showing kids how to do math with an app, or how to better read by listening to a book through iPads, teachers are finding they are great tools. Plus, many teachers are able to use the tablets to enter grades, update their classroom’s website and more.
“We are a company Founded by Educators for Educators®,” says Social Media Analyst Nate McGrath. “This contest is a perfect way to recognize educators and give them a chance to win something that will enhance what they do both in the classroom and at home.”
The “Educator iPad Attack” contest is now over. But Horace Mann is launching a “12 Days of Gifting” contest on Pinterest starting on December 9. Follow Horace Mann’s Pinterest page and enter for a chance to win prizes Dec. 9-21. Daily prizes include a Chromebook, Swivl camera, Tiffany’s pendant and a Coach bag.
