Giveaway: LYSOL Blue Ribbon School Attendance Challenge (2 $25 GCs) [CLOSED]

Our 3 children have had colds on and off (more often on than off) for over two months now. It seems like just about everyone we know has one or two family members who are sick at any given time. This seems to be the trend this year. For this reason LYSOL has teamed up with Scholastic to develop the LYSOL Mission for Health. Part of this mission is to integrate lesson plans about healthy habits both in school and in the home into the school curriculum to help improve reduce absenteeism.

As part of the LYSOL Mission For Health program, LYSOL and Scholastic are sponsoring the Blue Ribbon School Attendance Challenge. This challenge extends through April 1st, 2011. LYSOL will provide all the schools who enter with the materials they need to teach their students healthy habits for germ prevention. Parents will be asked to take a pledge to work towards the same goal. Simply put, the school administrators, along with other school leaders, will track their school's attendance for a chance to win money for their school. What school could not use extra funds? LYSOL will be awarding $75,000 in total. After last year's round of school budget cuts, I am scared to find out where our town will be cutting this year.

To read the official rules for this contest challenge, visit . You can learn more by visiting the LYSOL Community, where you can chat with other members to share experiences and tips for smarter germ prevention.

What you can win:
TWO lucky readers will each receive a $25 AMEX Gift Card.
