It's back to school time. Between shopping for clothes and gear, meeting with the new principal and teacher and getting back into a bedtime routine, it can cause quite a disruptance in our normal routine.
We are very fortunate that our daughter goes to a very small school. Last year, her private school had less than 30 students, and the new charter school she'll be attending this year has around 100 students enrolled so far. Small schools mean you know the students and parents, and can build trust, mutual respect and a sense of safety.
Unfortunately most families don't have this luxury. According to a survey conducted by Survey Monkey in May 2014 , nearly half of North American parents admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school. According to this same survey, more than half of North American students don’t use a locker to store their belongings – most opt to carry their belongings with them all day.
For these students, Master Lock can give them an added sense of safety and security. Their line of products for back to school, including the Master Lock 1500eDBX dialSpeed and 5900D SafeSpace , are stylish, secure and customizable – and they have features to help ensure your child doesn't forget their combination.
Their products with a Speed Dial are unique in that they open on directional movements (up, down, left, right) instead of the traditional rotary dial, much like cell phone passcodes.
They also offer padlocks for school and gym lockers, laptop locks, backpack locks and an online website and mobile app for storing passwords and other important documents.
To help get you excited, Master Lock is hosting a Photo Hunt Challenge. This interactive game gives players a chance to view the many products Master Lock has to offer to keep your child’s belongings safe at school while getting a chance to win awesome prizes. Through September 7, you can go to www.MasterLockPhotoHunt.com for your opportunity to win back-to-school security items and create your Master Lock shopping wish list.
I love hidden differences games so I'm excited to participate in the Photo Hunt Challenge. This challenge shows you two similar back-to-school images and asks you to identify the differences before time runs out. If you find all of the differences between the two images, you will unlock the next photo board with the potential to earn up to two sweepstakes entries for each play. You can earn an additional entry by sharing the photo hunt challenge on Twitter.
The grand prize is a Samsung Smart Media Center Package that includes a 60” HD 1080p Smart LED HDTV! Sign me up! There are a total of 65 opportunities to win, so go enter for your chance now.
In addition Master Lock will be hosting a Twitter party on August 5, 2014 at 8 pm EST (5 pm PST). Follow @ResourcefulMom for details.
