NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ (January 20, 2013) – There is no better way to start off a new year than with new supplies! That is exactly what two lucky New Jersey classrooms will be doing, thanks to a special contest by the state’s most listened-to news talk radio show, 1450 AM WCTC and a Bergen-county based everyday and seasonal product manufacturer and distributor, FLOMO®. “New Jersey TODAY” heard locally on 1450 AM WCTC and statewide at WCTCAM.com, and FLOMO®, a leading provider of quality school supplies, organized a statewide contest where every student from two lucky New Jersey classrooms would each receive their own back-to-school backpack.
Each backpack was loaded with supplies that every student needs, including pencils, pens, crayons, notebook, rulers, binder, pencil sharpener, Eco Erasers, and much more generously donated by FLOMO®. “We believe in the importance of education and that children should have adequate school supplies to use in their school years. FLOMO is proud to help and donate whatever we can,” says FLOMO President & CEO, Wendy Shen. WCTC and FLOMO® accepted contest nomination submissions from classrooms throughout the state; the nominations were open to parents, teachers, administrators, and even the students themselves.
In October, two winning classrooms were selected at random from the nominations; a 2nd grade class at Faber School in Dunellen, taught by Ms. Sherri Krauss, and a 3rd grade class at Academy Street School in Dover, taught by Ms. Lyndsay George. Following a delay caused by Hurricane Sandy, the students from each winning classroom received their backpacks during presentation ceremonies which were held at the winning schools. “It’s great to be able to help some Jersey students”, says Bert Baron, WCTC’s Program Director, and host of New Jersey TODAY. “As a kid who went to public school here in Jersey, I know that having good supplies to use every day is vital for academic success.”
Both WCTC and FLOMO are looking forward to repeating the contest for many years to come!
