Vienna, Va. -- The U.S. Apple Association (USApple) -- which represents the U.S. apple industry -- is seeking nominations for the second annual Apples for Education: Buy and Apple, Help a Student cause program. Through Sept. 9, educators, parents and people everywhere are encouraged to visit http://apples4ed. com/classroom-cause-entry-form/ and share an important student cause in their community in need of finan-cial support. USApple will then select finalists eligible for funds this fall. 

From Oct. 1 through Nov. 12, USApple and its Apple Buddies (sup-porting brands) will call on people to vote for the school cause of their choice every time they:

  • Snack on an apple, apple-sauce, apple juice or an Apple Buddy’s product
  • Snap a picture eating their snack
  • Tag their selected school and #Apples4Ed
  • Share on Instagram or Twitter The school with the most tags/votes will receive the most funding with additional funds awarded to other top-participating schools.
