Introduction for Educators

As school budget cutbacks affect your ability to offer valuable outreach education programs, the independent owners and operators of SHOP 'n SAVE want to remind you to start planning for this year's Students Extra Educational Development (S.E.E.D.) program — a free in-school assembly program sponsored by SHOP 'n SAVE in partnership with Carnegie Science Center and Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.
Each year more than 125,000 area school students in some 500 elementary schools and middle schools are treated to fun, hands-on learning experiences that range from science and the environment to space exploration and animal life. All you're required to do is register your Perks account online and choose your school. From there purchases will be automatically tracked and applied to your total (250 seeds for each student expected to participate) throughout the year. Earn one seed for every dollar spent using your Perks account. Seeds expire every two years. For example what you earn starting August 1st 2019 will expire on July 31st 2021.

How can I get involved?

Now instead of collecting receipts, you can link your Perks account with the school of your choice to help to bring an assembly to students. After you link your Perks account to your local school, just swipe your Perks account any time you shop at SHOP 'n SAVE. Your purchases will be automatically added to your school's total (a total of 250 seeds is required for each student attending the assembly.)

SHOP 'n SAVE Express stores may require register receipts for FREE assemblies. See store for details.
