  1. This website is fantastic. Not only do I get an opportunity to find out about upcoming contests and freebies, but I also have won! I love this site and have just entered the X-Acto contest. Good luck to all!

  2. I just entered the X-ACTO give away.
    Why is it that so many give aways and grants exclude preschool? I teach special needs preschool and need all the help I can get.

  3. I registered for a chance to win the X-Acto classroom giveaway. I sure could use a decent pencil sharpener and stapler! The one I have wastes a lot of time, and doesn’t do a very good job. Thanks!

  4. I entered the X-ACTO giveaway. My classroom could use an electric pencil sharpener! 🙂 Thanks for giving us all a chance to enter. 🙂

  5. The new contests are great! I entered the X-ACTO contest and the Westcott contest. I have used the X-ACTO paper cutter and I also own a few pairs of the Westcott scissors that my preschoolers use. Both of these brands of products carry nice supplies. Thanks for offering us these contests.

  7. I entered the xacto contest. I was a bit sad to see the Kids in Need grants doid not allow preK teachers to apply. I would of loved too. But I was very excited about the Xacto contest. Karen you always find the best resources. Thanks.

  10. Thanks for always keeping us in the loop, Karen!! I signed up for the Xacto give away and looked over the Kids in Need grants. I’m on vacation right now and will start thinking about what kind of grant I want to write for this year…it’s always good to dream, and why not do it on the beach!??!!

  11. I entered the Xacto giveway. I think these contests/giveaways are great. I am a new teacher, so im always looking for new things! Thank you!!!

  12. I signed up for the Xacto give away and for the Kids in Need grant. We always seem to have budget cuts that effect our pre-k program, so I am always looking for free ways to enhance our teaching/learning.

    That’s terrific—thank you for the additional information! This opportunity just gets better and better!


  15. I entered the X-ACTO $250 Classroom Giveaway and will be passing along the additional information from Penny Hawks regarding the Kids in Need Foundation grant.
