IdeaPaint’s 360-degree Classroom Makeover Contest Brings Innovative Learning to Deserving Schools across the United States

IdeaPaint seeks schools that are “ready to innovate” for its first classroom makeover contest

Ashland, Mass. — August 30, 2011 —With the launch of its first Classroom Makeover Contest, IdeaPaint is encouraging teachers and students to go ahead and write on their classroom walls, desks and even in the hallway and on lockers. IdeaPaint, the creator of high-performance dry-erase paint solutions, announced today that it is seeking schools that are ready to innovate to enter for a chance to win a makeover that aims to take the classroom learning experience to a new level of idea sharing, collaboration and active student engagement.  IdeaPaint is now seeking submissions and will accept them until September 30, 2011. Following that period, the company will award two deserving schools with dry-erase classroom makeovers.

IdeaPaint will present the selected schools with up to 500-square feet of its high-performance dry-erase paint. The company will also provide professional installation of its product.

IdeaPaint is a transformative and cost-effective classroom solution.  It can be applied to walls, desks, doors, lockers and many other surfaces to stimulate student imagination by creating writing areas that encourage collaboration, brainstorming and problem solving.  From a sustainability standpoint, IdeaPaint is GREENGUARD-certified—it conforms to stringent Children and Schools requirements—and its re-surfacing capabilities have saved countless worn-out traditional whiteboards and chalkboards from landfills, where they would never decompose.

Although winners of the Classroom Makeover Contest will receive IdeaPaint at no charge, IdeaPaint is also recognized as a major cost-savings for schools in desperate need of facilities updates; IdeaPaint is roughly half the price per square foot of a traditional whiteboard but actually performs better.

IdeaPaint’s reception within the education community thus far has been beyond encouraging,” said Marcus Wilson, chief marketing officer of IdeaPaint. “We take great pride in the fact that we’re playing a role in ‘making learning fun’ and helping children to be excited to participate in the classroom. We cannot wait to see what our contest winners do with their new ‘Idea rooms.’”

In order to be considered for the classroom makeover, schools are being asked to share photos or videos that depict the classroom space in need of new, innovative whiteboard surfaces. To nominate a worthy school and to learn more about contest criteria and the application process, please visit
