Chicago IL – Dec. 5, 2017 – As part of its ongoing effort to support technology initiatives in schools, CDI Computer Dealers is launching a “Holiday Wishes” contest starting Dec. 5, 2017 and running through Dec. 24, 2017. Schools can share their technology wishes with CDI by filling out an online form at https://goo.gl/18GaXg. The contest is open to schools in the United States and Canada. CDI will select three schools in Canada and three schools in the U.S. to grant their technology wishes. Awarded prizes will be valued at up to $1,000 each.  The deadline to enter is Dec. 24, 2017. Winners will be notified by December 30, 2017.

 

“CDI has partnered with school districts throughout North America to provide technology solutions that fit their needs and their budgets,” said Saar Pikar, CEO. “This holiday season we wanted to give back to the education industry by offering a fun contest to provide needed products and resources to three schools, to help them fulfill their technology wishes. Whether they want to acquire devices or charging carts to support their 1:1 initiatives, need to update their network or servers, or are seeking new accessories to use in the classroom, we want to help them reach their technology goals.”

 

To apply, school or district employees should go to https://goo.gl/18GaXg and fill out the online form. They will be asked to describe their technology wishes in 250-words or less. CDI will then review the submissions and select three schools in the U.S. and three schools in Canada as winners. Each winner will receive one CDI prize valued at no more than $1,000.. The contest is limited to one entry per person.
