WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — At least 200 schools will win a Smart Board — an interactive classroom tool — as part of a partnership between Procter & Gamble and Hy-Vee here.
For every $20 of Procter & Gamble products purchased at Hy-Vee through Nov. 30, shoppers earn 100 “Smart Points” to donate to the school of their choice. They get 100 additional points when they spend $5 or more on Sara Lee Bakery products in the same transaction.
All store receipts have a promotional code printed at the bottom. The code can be entered on the "Donate Points" button on Hy-Vee’s Web site. From there, participants can select their school. More than 200 schools with the most points will win.
Valued at $1,500, the Smart Board interactive whiteboard is a touch-sensitive display that connects to computers and digital projectors. Using a finger, users can control computer applications, write notes, pull up charts and images, search the Internet, play videos and save work. The latest models come with the “Touch Recognition” feature that allows users to switch modes automatically. This means users can write with a pen, erase with their palm and move objects with their finger without having to access other tools, buttons or on-screen menus.
Also, participants with the most points earned from each winning school will win a MacBook computer for their child.
“We encourage you to invest in the future of our schools and share the details of this promotion with your friends and family during the promotional period,” Hy-Vee states in promotional materials.
