Big Lots is turning to Americans 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 fifth-annual Lots2Give pro- gram 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 sup- port. Cash prizes include 30 $2,000 third place prizes, four $5,000 second place prizes, two $10,000 first place prizes and one $20,000 grand prize — the contest’s biggest prize amount total yet.
Now through July 8, the public can vote for their favorite video entries up to three times a day by visiting www.biglots.com/lots2give. Those votes will determine the schools that will share $120,000 in cash prizes. Miami-Dade County schools in the running are: Alonzo and Tracy Mourning High School, Coral Reef High School, Ronald Reagan Doral High School and South Miami High School.
“The Lots2Give program allows us to connect with schools in need of financial support across the country,” said Steve Fishman, chair, CEO and president. “We invite America to join us in selecting the winners of our Lots2Give video contest and promoting an important cause.”
In addition to the Lots2Give video con- test, participating schools will be the recipients of an in-store donation pro- gram. Customers can help selected schools by donating $1 or $5 at partici- pating Big Lots stores through July 8. One hundred percent of donations will go to participating schools.
