Entry Period Closes July 15 for OtterBox Learn Connected Grant of 75 iPads and Cases

OtterBox is giving away 75 iPads and Defender cases to an underserved classroom or school district, and teachers may enter or nominate other teachers through Friday, July 15.

Educators are invited to enter themselves or nominate other teachers of under-resourced classrooms for its 2022 Learn Connected Give Back Project; the winning entry will “illustrate a captivating story about the nominee, the challenge and need for resources they're currently experiencing, and how the nominee will strive to help their students learn in a connected world, OtterBox said in its announcement.

The 2021 winner of the inaugural Learn Connected Give Back Project was Heather McCarthy, media specialist at Oak Lawn Hometown Middle School in Chicago. McCarthy “sought to grow her school's iPad arsenal of three for the entire student body of 1,100 in order to tackle a variety of technology-enabled community service projects,” OtterBox said.

Entries and nominations will be accepted until 11:59:59 pm MT on Friday, July 15, 2022. The grant is open to legal U.S. residents residing in the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old. No purchase is necessary to enter, nominate, or win.
