Lunchables Field Trips for All: Nominate a Classroom

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Lunchables. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m sure that many of us can recall a favorite field trip that we experienced in our elementary/middle/high school days. For me, one of my favorites was a high school band trip that we took to Toronto, Canada to see the Phantom of the Opera. For this small town girl, it was my first experience watching a show of that caliber – and needless to say, was pretty amazing! I also remember trips to museums and science centers – again, fun (and rare) opportunities that showed me a glimpse of the world beyond my tiny town.

According to a 2009 report from The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the course of the current school year, the number of school districts eliminating field trips will increase by 56 percent. It is sad to think of the experiences that many kids will miss out on with the elimination of trips like these.

Thankfully, Lunchables has created a new initiative called Project Potential – focused on providing enriching experiences for kids that they might not have otherwise. The first effort from this initiative is called Field Trips For All. Through this program, anyone over the age of 6 can nominate a deserving classroom to win 1 of 50 educational field trips to be sponsored by Lunchables.

It is simple to nominate a deserving classroom. Simply watch this video (also in this post below) and nominate a classroom (grades 1-8). Nominations are being accepted through June 1, 2010. You can also spread the word about this promotion via Facebook, Twitter and email on the Field Trips For All website, so be sure to check that out.

Do you have a favorite classroom that you think is deserving of one of these trips? Let me know if you decide to nominate them, and why!
