West Newton Elementary in Covington is among the Top 10 Schools nationwide redeeming the most points donated by families for free supplies and equipment as part of the My Coke Rewards program.
Together, the 10 schools have collected more than $5,000 worth of goods for their classes, cashing in points donated at www.mycokerewards.com . The bonanza will allow students at West Newton to enjoy an entire Field Day event, with a kit including Tug of War supplies, potato sacks, award ribbons and much more and a fun-filled afternoon of parachute activities with a 24-foot parachute and game tools.
My Coke Rewards for Schools, launched last year, continues during the 2009-2010 school year. A Back to School Sweepstakes, which runs through Aug. 31, 2009 will also enter schools – and one lucky family of four – for a chance to win a free movie screening of “More Than A Game,” the story of courage and teamwork featuring NBA All Star and MVP LeBron James and his high school teammates. Winning schools will get the screening in their hometown. The winning family of four will get a trip to New York City for the movie premiere on Sept. 22.
Families can participate in My Coke Rewards by going to www.mycokerewards.com and donating points. Codes can be found on more than 200 participating packages of Coca-Cola products including Sprite, Dasani and Minute Maid.
