We are always on the lookout for funding opportunities to share with our readers and this week two wonderful school breakfast grants came across our desks. The first is the Breakfast Blitz competition, with Fuel Up to Play 60 and Got Milk? Milk Moustache campaign, and the second is through the American Association of School Administrators. Apply now!
Not only is the Breakfast Blitz competition an opportunity to win a $1000 grant for the breakfast program at a local school, the prizes are amazing! How does a trip for four to Super Bowl XLVIII, free milk for a year, and two tickets to a local NFL game sound? And did we mention the $200 gift card to the NFL online shop and the Breakfast Blitz Fuel Pack? There are five tiers of prizes, starting with the Breakfast Blitz Fuel pack, all the way on up to the Super Bowl in February, and entering is simple: just enter the sweepstakes online by submitting UPC codes from any size milk package. For every entry you will be submitted to win a prize! There is a voting component as well, which will help determine the recipient of the $1000 school grant. This contest is co-sponsored by Fuel Up to Play 60 and the Got Milk? Milk Moustache campaign—sign up to win here, and read the full set of rules here.
