DOES YOUR SCHOOL COLLECT BOXTOPS?  I am the Boxtop coordinator for our school and wanted to see/hear ideas from other schools on what kinda contests  they have, or what comes home with their kids that advertise collecting box tops for their school!

I think our school does. They just started at that school this year. We moved. I dont know how they would advertise it.

Maybe send flyers home or emails, banners at the school..

My daughter's school  has a webkinz contest- they have to fill out the sheet with box tops then at the end of the month they pick one and that student wins a webkinz. I like box tops b/c it is already on stuff that you buy you do not have to do anything extra!!

Hi there. Im a BXTPs coordinator also. for my sons school. I have been for 2 years now.Last year was my first year so I didn't know exactly what to expect..lol.. this year is much different. I've already gotten this years prizes. I sent out donation letters to local companys. and every single company sent free passes :O).

Im sending in a packet of information probably the 2nd day of school. they are always bombarded the first day with the schools packet. anyhow I've made a packet of infor with what we collect how I want them done. and what the program is all about. that is FREE money..meaning no frundraiser is need. Do you know about the BXTP website? that is a big help to. Im waiting on the free kindergarten kits to come and I'll hand them out to them as well. last year we earned over 1000. .

do you collect anything else? we also do Campbells soup labels. them you get points for and school gets to pick out products for the school. if you want the websited for box tops let me know.PM me and I'll get it to you.

Happy collecting.

 i collect box tops and best choice labels and cambell soup labels. i live in missouri and every year, almost, the school sends home a list of all the labels and lids our school turns in for free books and art supplies and class supplies. i don't remember all of the things that was on the list and  i am still waiting for that paper this year. the PE teacher is the person  the students turn the labels to at our school. i have my kids turn them in 2 to 3 times a school year.

At my son's school one year had a contest to see who the favorite team was.  Here it was Aggies, Longhorns, and I don't remember the others.  I don't remember the prize though.

We do both Boxtops and Campbell's soup labels. Our school does pizza parties quarterly, I think, for the class that brings in the most. I collect boxtops and labels year round. They send out flyers 3-4 times a year. We brought in $800 last year which is mind blowing to me for boxtops and soup labels.
