Thomas Built Buses is hosting a Back to School Photo Contest and invites parents to submit a photo of their child that best represents the Back to School season.

The top five winners, one from each of Thomas’ geographic regions, will each receive a $2,000 donation for their child’s school.

“School buses are such an integral part of our children’s lives,” says Kelley Platt, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses. “This photo contest is a great way to celebrate the excitement and nostalgia of riding the school bus back to school.”

To enter, parents ages 18 and older must “like” the Thomas Built Buses Facebook page and submit a photo of their child enrolled in grade K-12 on the page. All photos must depict a school bus, and photos that best represent the fun, excitement, and nostalgia of riding the bus back to school will have the best chances of winning.

The most popular photos, as determined by “likes” will be selected as finalists from which the five winners will be selected.

Entries will be accepted Sept. 1 through Sept. 14. Voting begins Sept. 15 for all eligible photos. On October 1, the top 50 winning photos from the popular vote will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges who will choose the top five final winners (one from each of Thomas Built’s geographic areas).

The top 5 winners (one from each of Thomas Built Buses geographic areas) will receive a $2,000 donation for their school’s programs in science, technology and math.

The winning photos may also be used on the Thomas Built website, social media and promotional materials.
