First of all, I want to thank all of the super cool, creative teachers that sent in photos and videos of their grooooovy Pete-themed classrooms. I had a hard time picking just three winners! The way you guys transform classrooms is absolutely amazing!
But, without further ado-- the winners of the 2018 Pete the Cat Classroom Contest!
First Place goes to... Lisa Miller!!!
Lisa may, in fact, be Pete's biggest fan. These are just a few of the pictures Lisa sent us of her amazing classroom! She has EVERYTHING-- every Pete book, Pete curtains, custom-made Pete decorations, a HUGE Pete storytime rug, lots of Pete posters and plushies. Thank you for sharing all this joy with us and your students!
Lisa teaches in Hazel Green, Alabama. Congratulations! Your classroom is simply PAW-fect!!!
Second Place goes to... Nikki Lozano!
Her classroom blew me away! She showed us everything through an adorable video set to the new Pete the Cat TV show's theme song. Her magical Pete classroom featured lots of Pete artwork, posters, books, and plushies. There were a few cool cat bulletin boards and even a Pete the Cat coffee station to get her through the day! Kids enjoy reading in a groovy VW bus reading nook, and there's even a big Pete surfing near the ceiling. Thanks for being groovy, Nikki!!
She lives in Louisiana and says of her school, "I work at a school with a very high poverty rate & 100% free lunch. Every year my students enter my classroom as a safe haven & quickly fall in love with Pete the Cat & reading!! Thanks for making the grooviest books of all time. We love & appreciate you! ❤️"
And last, but certainly not least...
Third Place goes to... Olivia Winstead!
Olivia's classroom is one of the grooviest around. These are just a few features of her super cool Pete the Cat class. She also sent us a great idea for using Pete as a way for kids to continue reading and learning at home! Check out the video here
From all of us at Pete the Cat, thank you so much! Winners, your prizes will be sent out soon! All other participants, be on the look out for a groovy surprise in the mail!
