Samsung, Lowe’s & NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson Want to Give your School Some Tech

NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson, the current reigning Sprint Cup Series champion, along with his sponsor Lowe’s and tech giant Samsung want to give your local school $48,000 in technology to help educate children. The Jimmie Johnson Foundation will select one school from nominations made either on their website or via Twitter.

I’m a Hendrick’s Motor Sports fan, the team that owns Johnson’s car along with Jeff Gordan, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and Mark Martin. Xavier Lanier and I were able to visit Charlotte’s Lowes Motor Speedway last year for the spring race where we learned that technology changed the way NASCAR teams do their job.

If you want to let Johnson’s foundation help Samsung and Lowe’s change the way your school educates kids, just nominate your school. To do so tweet your schools technology needs along with the hashtag #teamup4tech. You can put a picture in the tweet if you want, but you may only tweet about the contest one time to be eligible.

You may also nominate your school by filling out the form at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation page. All entries must be submitted by 5 PM Eastern on October 3. Any US K-12 school can be nominated and more than one person can nominate your school even though each person can only submit one nomination one time. To learn more about the contest see the details.
