Win a FREE two night hotel stay in the city of your choice!

We here at Brightspark Travel don't need an excuse to appreciate teachers, but we just couldn't let Teachers' Appreciation Week, May 7 - 11, go by without doing a little something extra. To show you how much we appreciate you, we have decided to give away one two-night hotel stay to the teacher or group leader who writes the best description about why they love to travel with their class or group.

To enter, all you need to do is write at least 100 words on why you love educational travel. Write about the educational or social benefits to your students... Write about how you just love to leave your classroom behind and teach the experience... Write about anything, as long as it tells us why you devote your time and energy to traveling with your class. 

So how do you enter? Well, you can either email your entry to Marketing@BrightsparkTravel.com or you can send us a message or post it on our wall over at our Facebook Page. Just make sure to get your entry in by 12-noon (Central Standard Time), this Friday May 11th. We'll announce the winner at 4:00pm that same day!

Be sure to get your entry in - you're only 100-words away from your chance to win a two-night hotel stay in the United States city of your choice!
