From the 8th Annual Shorty Awards

#SaidNoSchoolEver

Finalist in Social Good Campaign, Humor

Entered in Education, Hashtag

About this entry

Hefty is the only trash bag that supports Box Tops For Education, one of America's largest school earning loyalty programs. By simply clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of participating products, families can earn cash for their school to purchase books, field trips, playground equipment, etc. So far, America's schools have earned over $600 million from Box Tops—with $3.5M dollars donated by Hefty.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

In June of 2015, back-to-school promotions were kicking into high gear and education continued to be a hot topic. Hefty took this opportunity to unveil a provocative new online campaign, titled #SaidNoSchoolEver.

Comprised of online video, social media, and influencer outreach, the campaign highlighted (in a tongue in cheek way) the pervasive problem facing public schools across the country: lack of funding.

Through #SaidNoSchoolEver, Hefty also saw a chance to raise awareness for its products while tying the brand to a hot issue that is near and dear to its consumer base of moms with school-aged children.

With online videos and memes, the campaign demonstrated the brand's commitment to the cause by encouraging people on its social channels to tag teachers who "do it all" in order to show support and recognize the great teachers they have learned from over the years.

Results

The campaign garnered over 57MM video views and earned more than 72MM impressions. This eye-opening, sarcastic campaign ignited a conversation that has yet to burn out with the targeted moms and more importantly, educators.
