    Default School contest and prizes ideas?

    I am in charge of this year's boxtop program.....and I am blowing it. Anyone have any ideas for contests that could get 4th-6th graders to bring in boxtops to school? Last year, they did a contest between classes and had a movie in the classroom for the winning class. The collection rate was low and I think the reward was kind of lame. Still....I can't think of anything good to do. My first thought was to provide a treat (food based) to the lunchtime of the winning class each month, but that got vetoed by the healthy food types. :| I should have seen that coming. Now, I'm thinking of having the winning class get some outside prize in the spring.

    Any thoughts? I was drafted for this job....and I'm totally not in to this. Enthusiasm needed.

    Oh brother. My idea was going to be an icecream sundae party but then I read the part about that getting vetoed. For Pete's sake, you aren't suggesting ice cream sundaes everyday for a week.

    Is pizza an acceptable food group? Veggie pizza? (j/k). How about win a pizza lunch with the principal?

    I think that our school let the kids vote on how the money was spent. They voted for an assembly with Larry the reptile man or something slithery like that.

    How about let the winning class choose how it is spent?

    Disclaimer - no kids.

    But the ones that I always see that seem to go over big are the ones where a teacher has to do something embarrasing. Like shave their head or spend a day on the roof of the school. :huh:

    I think our school is doing a pizza party. Not too original.
