Walmart Celebrates Schools and Teachers by Hosting Back-to-School Experiences
Walmart Newsroom | August 23, 2021
As students head back to class with a fresh start, Walmart is helping families and communities celebrate. A TikTok Challenge, a series of music experiences and a livestream event, Walmart honors teachers, schools and all of the students kicking off the new school year.
Walmart's kicking off a challenge, in partnership with some of the most popular TikTokers, to honor the teachers who’ve made an impact on students’ and families’ lives over the past year. Customers can submit a TikTok video sharing why their favorite teacher deserves to be recognized. Walmart will select and award a $5,000 Walmart gift card and school supplies to 100 of the teachers who are submitted and a supplies-filled backpack to the 100 nominators.
Walmart’s “Homecoming” concert series showcases three musical artists who want to say thank you to the teachers and schools from their communities. Imagine Dragons, Chance the Rapper and Kane Brown will be hosting free, outdoor or virtual concerts for students and teachers to celebrate Homecoming – Walmart style. Walmart's closing livestream event on Sept. 7 is hosted by actors Noah Schnapp and Madison Bailey offering virtual attendees exclusive back-to-school prizes and shoppable content across social platforms.
