BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for back-to-school season, Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) announces the launch of the Zoinks Points for Education program and an accompanying sweepstakes. The program is designed to award one U.S. school with critical educational funding, while at the same time, instilling young students with the love of reading. The sweepstakes kicks off in August and runs through December 31 at ZoinksPointsForEducation.com.
The Zoinks Points for Education sweepstakes is a promotional offering from the successful ZoinksPoints.com destination, a Scooby-Doo loyalty rewards program where consumers can collect, bank and redeem points from specially marked Scooby-Doo licensed merchandise and earn digital rewards.
The sweepstakes will be promoted in the August/September issue of Scholastic Parent & Child magazine, which will feature fun-with-phonics and back-to-school learning tips from Scooby and the Gang.
"Warner Bros. Consumer Products is proud to partner Scooby-Doo and the Gang with this great promotion, coupling the love kids and parents across the country have for Scooby with the fun and enjoyment of reading," said Karen McTier, executive vice president, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Through the Zoinks Points for Education Sweepstakes, Warner Bros. Consumer Products will award $5,000 (USD), designated for educational enrichment programs, supplies or equipment, to one lucky school of the winner's choice. In addition, the first 1,000 people to enter the sweepstakes will receive a copy of the new "Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy" companion reader from Scholastic, based on the latest all-new Scooby-Doo original movie of the same name, now available on DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack (DVD + BD+ Ultraviolet Digital Copy) or Digital HD for the first time ever.
"Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy" features Scooby-Doo and those "meddling kids," Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma, as Velma discovers she's inherited her great-great-uncle Dr. Von Dinkenstein's cursed castle in the terrifying town of Transylvania… Pennsylvania, that is. Just when the Gang persuades Velma to go claim her inheritance, the ghost of Dinkenstein Castle blows up the Mystery Machine as a warning! Now the Crew must spring back into action, but this time it's personal! Who's responsible for the Dinkenstein monster? What family secret has Velma been hiding? Will Fred recover from the loss of his beloved Mystery Machine? Can any helpless snack survive Scooby and Shaggy's monster-sized appetites? This Scooby-Doo adventure has enough spooky fun to make the whole family come alive!
Also in time for back-to-school, look for fun and functional Scooby-Doo offerings from WBCP partners such as Scholastic, Thermos, LeapFrog, Bioworld, Buckle Down, Redan Publishing, Mead, Good2Grow, Betty Crocker fruit flavored snacks and more available at retailers nationwide.
