California Schools Can Win $20,000 With Real Seal Appeal Sweepstakes!

Southern California’s elementary schools need all the help they can get in this economy.  Budgets for public schools have been slashed year after year and the results are evident; poor classroom conditions, lack of equipment, and art and music programs have all but disappeared.

What school district can afford to pass up an opportunity to collect free money? Yes! FREE money!

Real California Milk  wants to give back to Southern California elementary schools by awarding $20,000 to grand prize winners, $10,000 to second place winners, and $5,000 to three schools with another 2,595 schools getting $500 for collecting Real California Milk seals from participating products.

The Real Seal Appeal  sweepstakes run from October 1, 2011-December 31, 2011!

The California Milk Advisory Board will be challenging Southern California elementary classrooms, schools and students to collect Real California Milk seals from milk and dairy products for a chance to win up to $2 million in cash, Scholastic books and other prizes.

Your school could win one of the following prizes:

  • Grand Prize: 3 winning schools will receive $20,000 plus a Wii Fit™ game for

every child in classroom (up to 50)

  •  2nd Place: 3 winning schools will receive $10,000 plus a Wii Fit™ game for every

  • 3rd Place: 3 winning schools will receive $5,000 plus a Wii Fit™ game for every

  • Runner Ups: 2,595 winning schools will receive $500 prizes

Participating elementary schools in Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

Besides counting as an entry for exciting sweepstakes prizes, your first valid entry earns one FREE Scholastic book. Books will be awarded to the first 50,000 entrants. After your first entry, every set of 100 valid seals submitted earns 25 additional FREE Scholastic books or a $25 school supplies gift card. Please indicate on your information card which prize you would like to receive. See official rules for details and restrictions.

Schools, parents, kids, friends and neighbors can all help their local school by collecting Real California Milk seals from milk products (except those available at school).  



“California is the nation’s dairy state, it leads the U.S. in the production of total milk, butter, ice cream, yogurt and nonfat dry milk so when looking for the Real California Milk seal, you’re supporting both the 1620 California dairy families and California schools.”

Here are 5 ways your school could come together and try to win these prizes:

                1. Announce a classroom Real Seal Appeal seal drive,

                2. Set up collection cans, boxes or envelops at the school front office and in classrooms,

                3. Have your school’s PTA participate and spread the word about collecting the seals,

                4. Have a tangible goal for the school to know how the prize money would be used: projectors, new library bookshelves, PE gear or playground equipment.

                5. Place an announcement in the school bulletin for everyone to join in the effort to win the grand prize.

All your school needs to do is sign up! To enter the sweepstakes, please read the eligibility requirements here.
