Now through July 24, eligible teachers are invited to enter at www.LakeshoreLearning.com/contest* and submit an essay describing their teaching style and why their classroom needs a makeover.

With over 60 years of experience serving the teaching community, Lakeshore understands the challenges today's educators face in creating a thriving learning environment for their students. Lakeshore's Complete Classrooms service was first introduced in 2012 to assist teachers with all the behind-the-scenes work required to set up a classroom. The service includes:
- Selecting appropriate products that meet a school's specific needs and budget
- Creating a custom 3-D layout to help teachers visualize their classroom
- Coordinating deliveries, unpacking boxes, setting up materials and assembling furniture on-site
- Removing all boxes and packing materials so classrooms are ready to go
As the country's sole provider of this service, Lakeshore is fully stocked and ready to reward the contest's grand prize winner with a Complete Classrooms makeover from start to finish! In addition to receiving all the services mentioned above, the winner will get to choose from Lakeshore's most popular furniture selections…and will receive a huge array of exclusive teaching materials, from dramatic play centers & book libraries to hands-on math & science kits! The grand prize winner will also be recognized on Lakeshore's For the Love of Learning blog this September—with photos capturing the classroom's complete transformation!
"We know that setting up a new classroom is no small task for busy teachers," said Bo Kaplan, Lakeshore's president and CEO. "We developed the Complete Classrooms service to take away some of that burden. Our experts take care of all the practical details teachers shouldn't have to think about so they can focus on what's truly important—teaching. With that in mind, we're thrilled to be giving one hardworking teacher a brand-new classroom ahead of the upcoming school year."
