THANK YOU to all who participated in our Shopping Cart Challenge. We’ll be hosting more giveaways like this during our 25th Anniversary Year, so follow us on Facebook to be sure you don’t miss any giveaway opportunities!

First Book’s mission includes delivering possibilities for children in need – which means making high-quality books and resources available to the educators serving them at the best possible value. The First Book Marketplace offers books, school supplies, basic needs items, computers and tablets, and games at a fraction of the retail cost. But just how many amazing resources can you get on a budget? Take the Shopping Cart Challenge to find out!

How it works:

  1. Take a look at the awesome assortment of resources in the picture above (Hint: there’s even a tablet in there!).
  2. Comment on this First Book Facebook post with a guess on how much you think it would cost if you ordered all of these items from the First Book Marketplace (not including tax). Make sure to ‘LIKE’ our page while you’re there!
  3. The closest guess without going over (Price is Right rules apply!) will win a First Book Marketplace credit to fill up their own cart!*

*You must be a registered member of the First Book community of educators to win. Eligible educators should enter to win by posting their guess to this status on First Book’s Facebook page before 12AM on September 6, 2017. The closest guess that does not exceed the correct value will be considered the winner. If more than one person submits the correct answer, a winner with the correct answer will be chosen at random from all correct responses. The winner will chosen on Facebook and notified via email by September 15, 2017.
