ASTROBRIGHTS® Papers, the market leader in high-quality, vibrant color paper, is helping teachers get a bright start on the new school year. The brand’s third annual Colorize™ Your Classroom contest encourages teachers to share ideas about using color to create the optimum environment for learning.

This year’s campaign kicks off on Aug. 14 and is led by the Bright Minds, Astrobrights’ team of education bloggers who serve as brand ambassadors. Every week through Sept. 18, one of the Bright Minds will share a new idea on their own blog for how to use color to enhance the learning environment for students. Following the Bright Mind’s lead, readers are encouraged to share photos on Facebook of their own projects showing how they leverage color for learning in their classrooms. Each original project that is shared gives the teacher a chance to win a supply of Astrobrights Papers, providing them with resources to make learning a brighter experience for their students throughout the year.

Color paper is a popular tool teachers use to create a quick, cost-effective and significant impact on their classrooms. Studies show that learning is accelerated by 55 to 78 percent and comprehension goes up by nearly 75 percent just by adding color to the learning process. Providing a space for teachers to share ideas on how to leverage color in learning will create a collection of inspiration for teachers as they set up their classrooms for the new school year.

For details on how to enter and a chance to Colorize™ Your Classroom, be sure to follow Astrobrights’ social channels and each of the Bright Minds’ blogs beginning August 14.
