Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

The first winner of Nelson Education's NelsonSchoolCentral.com $5000 giveaway is teacher Amy Shanley of Rideau High School, a Beacon school in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

Beacon Schools designate schools with greater need. "Many of the students … face financial challenges," said Shanley, who was extremely moved when she learned the news. Shanley plans to invest in books, a museum trip, and equipment for specialty programs.

"Nelson recognizes the funding challenges schools face," said Michael Boughner, Executive Director of Marketing, School Division. "We're honoured to empower teachers like Amy with resources to support them in delivering an unrivalled learning advantage."

The next draw takes place December 31st, 2010. Contest information and updates on November's winner at www.nelson.com/win5000.
