OfficeMax annnounces Teacher of the Year contest

March 06, 2006

OfficeMax in Hagerstown is joining TeachersCount and Marvel Entertainment to ask local middle-school students to nominate their favorite teachers in the OfficeMax Super Hero Teacher of the Year contest.

Hagerstown-area students in grades six through eight may nominate a teacher by writing a 200-word essay titled "Why My Teacher is a Super Hero."

The grand-prize winning teacher and the nominating student will be included as an illustration in a Marvel comic book, as well as in a special-edition comic book honoring teachers.

The winning teacher also will receive $6,000 in prizes for school and personal classroom supplies. The student with the winning nomination will earn a $500 OfficeMax gift card.


The five first-prize winning teachers and students will win $100 OfficeMax gift cards.

Contest entry forms are available at OfficeMax at 17664 Garland Groh Blvd., and completed entries may be dropped off at the store.

Entries must be received or postmarked by March 17.

The winning teacher will be announced May 9.
