Congratulations To The Winners Of Our 2013 Lots2Give Video Contest!
View the winning videos below.
Big Lots is committed to programs that enhance the quality of education for schools in need of financial support in the communities we serve.
Participating schools were able to make their voice heard by submitting a short video & brief essay explaining why their school is in need of financial support! Winning schools will share $120,000 in cash prizes, which include one $20,000 grand prize, two $10,000 first place prizes, four $5,000 second place prizes and thirty $2,000 third place prizes!
In addition, selected schools benefited from an in-store donation program. Customers across America helped select schools by donating $1 or $5 at participating Big Lots stores April 29 through July 7! 100% of donations went to participating schools.
Special thanks to all Lots2Give participants and the thousands of people who voted!
Learn Together, Play Together
Fairfax Elementary School
Cleveland Heights, OH
Fairfax Elementary serves a wide population of children, including those with a range of physical and developmental disabilities. We strive to integrate students of all abilities into school life, but our current playground equipment makes full student integration impractical. Winning the Lots2Give contest would help us build a specially designed, adaptive-play structure to allow students of all abilities to share in the joy of recess together, playing and growing side-by-side.
