Third Annual "Avery Give Back to Schools" Promotion

Avery Dennison’s Office and Consumer Products Group announced the winners of their “Avery Give Back to Schools™” promotion today. Prizes will be awarded to each of the 30 schools that received the most online votes in a tier-based structure, and 10 randomly selected schools that qualified based on a threshold of votes received.

The five schools that earned the most online public votes will each receive $10,000 (retail value) worth of Avery® school supplies, 25,000 Bonus eBox Tops® (a $2,500 value) and $1,000 in gift cards for teachers to purchase additional classroom supplies.

Teachers, families and supporters (ages 18 and older) voted online for their local K-8 school between May 7 and September 14, 2012.

“For the third year in a row we are happy to be supporting and drawing attention to the needs of schools," said Tim Bond, Group Vice President of Office and Consumer Products for Avery Dennison.
