Boca Raton, Fla., Sept. 9, 2014 – Time is running out for teachers to enter the ‘Gotta Get It!’ Teacher Awards Sweepstakes* from Office Depot, Inc., a leading global provider of school supplies, office products, services and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax. Through September, teachers can download free back-to-school curriculum and educational materials such as teacher-tested ideas on organizing the classroom and school-related paperwork while entering for a chance to win a $500 gift card for school supplies. These are just some of the benefits available to teachers as a result of Office Depot’s partnership with The Education Center, LLC, publisher of The Mailbox® books and magazines.

"With a huge back-to-school must-have list, I jumped at the chance to win a $500 Office Depot or OfficeMax gift card," said kindergarten teacher Heather Graley of Blacklick, Ohio. "I was surprised at how easy it was to visit the website and enter."

Graley is among thousands of teachers from across the country who have entered the sweepstakes, downloaded free resources and taken advantage of special discounts available during teacher appreciation events held at various Office Depot and OfficeMax stores throughout the summer. The overwhelming response demonstrates how teachers often dig deep into their own pockets to purchase supplies for their students.

"The best part? I was able to share these resources with my colleagues, getting bonus entries for myself each time I did."
