For the past few months, we’ve been working to create an initiative that will celebrate educators and continue to communicate Velcro Industries’ dedication to improving education and creating skills for children around the world.

We are excited (and eager!) to announce our first-ever Classroom Takeover Contest – an opportunity for teachers across the country to receive a makeover for their classroom and benefit from a better layout, more efficient organization and of course, fun and inspirational colors and products. Just in time for National Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4-8, 2015), the contest is a chance for us to say thank you to educators.

One reason I chose to work with Velcro Industries is its commitment to providing the right tools to create opportunities for future visionaries to shine and that is something I truly believe in and am passionate about. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this contest and have the chance to makeover one lucky winner’s space.

VELCRO® Brand products are great for educators and really, anyone trying to create a productive atmosphere. The products eliminate the stresses of staying organized and also help trigger creative project ideas for the classroom. They’re ideal for all tasks ranging from hanging artwork, creating tactile learning projects and keeping things in order in a colorful and vibrant way – what’s better than that?

Nominations for PreK – grade 12 educational rooms are open to educators, students, parents or friends and must be received by April 30, 2015. All classrooms, resource rooms or formal learning areas are eligible for submissions. For more information and to enter for the chance to receive a makeover by me personally, please visit

Good luck!
