Win $1000 for Your Classroom!

McD Classroom grant 2017

Hello Friends and Partners,

To celebrate the back-to-school season and to show our appreciation to local teachers for all they do for our students, McDonald’s of Tampa Bay is excited to host the fourth annual Classroom FUNds Contest for the greater Tampa Bay area* teachers with a chance to win $1,000 for their classrooms!


From August 7 through September 22, 2017 McDonald’s invites teachers with kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms to enter the contest by submitting a video, letter, student artwork – whatever it takes – to highlight how they are making an educational impact and what they would do with the $1,000 prize to put toward their classroom needs and supplies.


Our panel of judges will select four teachers based on their creativity and how they are making a difference in the classrooms to further students’ education.


Attached to this email are four documents with information on the Classroom FUNds Contest to pass along to your teachers:


  • Last year’s winners 
  • 2017 Contest flyer with the details on entry
  • Photo Waiver (if applicable) 
  • Contest Legal Rules/Guidelines 
  • Everything lives online so you can also direct teachers to the following link:


We hope you will share this exciting opportunity with your teachers so they have the chance to win$1,000. Submissions and any questions about the contest can be emailed


We’re lovin’ everything teachers are doing for our local students, so we’re looking forward to receiving some creative entries and rewarding four exceptional teachers in our community!
