This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson. The opinions and text are all mine.
When I look our nations rankings for education, it is very hard to see Nevada schools ranking so low. It makes me wonder why? The elementary school my children attend has some amazing teachers that are dedicated to their students. What I do know is we experienced major budget cuts and lack funding. As a community we also experienced the same blow to our income. Put those two things together and you have schools that can’t afford enough staff and the necessary materials for education. The burden is placed heavily upon the teachers and parents own income.
Many schools rely heavily on volunteers, donations, grants and fundraising. There are many companies and programs that want to help. The Tyson Project A+™ program is one of the simplest ways to support your school. Just clip and collect Tyson Project A+™ labels from Tyson® participating packages. For every label submitted, Tyson will give the school cash and the school can use the money for whatever it needs.
We often purchase Tyson® Fun Nuggets, Tyson® Chicken Nuggets, and Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips for our kids. These Tyson® products have 100% natural ingredients, are simple to prepare and fun to eat. The label can be found on the back of the package and looks like this:
Each label you collect is worth .24 cents. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot but if 1000 students bring in a single label that is $240 for your school.
Another great way to help is to visitand nominate your school by sharing why your school needs a head start on collecting Tyson Project A+™ labels. Once you have submitted your reasons, you will get the option to share your post on your OWN social feeds to drive your community’s involvement. The school with the most nominations will receive a packet of labels worth $1,000 to help their school get a head start on collecting Tyson Project A+™ labels.
Visit the Tyson Project A+™ to find your school, enroll your school and learn more about this program.
