Essilor Vision Foundation and Kendra Scott Partner for School Appreciation Program

By

DALLAS—Teachers, nurses and school administrators are everyday heroes who deserve to be honored for helping to ensure their students can see clearly and continue to learn, whether it's online or in the classroom. Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) and Kendra Scott are celebrating these heroes through the Champions for Sight program and giving them the chance to win selected Kendra Scott jewelry, according to an announcement this week. The sweepstakes runs from Oct. 30, 2020, to Nov. 30, 2020, and is free to enter and win. Teachers, nurses and school administrators can enter here.

School officials and teachers can increase their chances to win by following EVF on social media and sharing the contest with colleagues. Parents also are encouraged to share the sweepstakes with the teachers, nurses and administrators at their kids' schools. By Dec. 8, 100 winners will be randomly selected to receive one piece of Kendra Scott jewelry valued at $50 to $100 per gift.

"We are extremely grateful for the community of teachers, nurses and administrators who are going above and beyond for their students," EVF president and executive director Becky Palm said in the announcement. "We are delighted to partner with Kendra Scott to celebrate these dedicated individuals."

"Kendra Scott is excited to support EVF, as giving back is central to our corporate mission," added Ashley Zorn, Kendra Scott’s marketing and philanthropic manager-North Texas. "Through our Kendra Gives Back program, we give causes the power to fundraise with our business throughout the year. We believe in a world in which all women and children live their brightest, healthiest and most empowered lives. EVF is changing lives every day by giving children the gift of clear sight."

Teachers and school nurses are often the first adults to recognize that a child may have a vision problem, and EVF wants to support their commitment to helping students and parents understand the importance of clear vision. That's why the foundation created Champions for Sight, which provides free educational resources to use in the classroom and at home, according to the announcement.
