Big Lots, Inc. (NYSE: BIG), North America’s largest broadline closeout retailer, is turning to America to determine the 37 winners in this year’s Lots2Give video contest by voting online for their favorite video. The contest is part of the sixth-annual Lots2Give program launched by Big Lots to help schools in need of financial support across America.
Big Lots asked participating schools to put their creativity to the test by submitting a short video and brief essay explaining why their school is in need of financial support. Cash prizes include thirty $2,000 third place prizes, four $5,000 second place prizes, two $10,000 first place prizes and one $20,000 grand prize.
Twin Lakes Elementary School in the Mountain View School District submitted a video and hopes to earn money for new computers for the school. Winners are determined by public vote so cast your vote for Twin Lakes now through July 7 at www.biglots.com/lots2give. You can vote up to three times a day, and those votes will determine the schools that will share $120,000 in cash prizes.
“Big Lots is excited to extend a helping hand to schools in need of financial support in the communities we serve,” said David Campisi, Chief Executive Officer and President. “We invite the public to join us in selecting the winners of our Lots2Give video contest and contributing to an important cause.”
In addition to the Lots2Give video contest, participating schools will be the recipients of an in-store donation program. Customers can help selected schools by donating $5 or $1 at participating Big Lots stores through July 7. One hundred percent of donations will go to participating schools.
