Educator Sweepstakes: Win a Trip to “The Giver” Premiere


The Educator Sweepstakes has closed.

The winner will be notified soon.


A primary theme in our upcoming movie The Giver is the relationship between Jonas, the Receiver of Memory (Brenton Thwaites), and his mentor, the Giver (Jeff Bridges). It is the Giver who must transmit to Jonas memories of the way life once was, before their Community embraced a culture of “sameness.” Through this process, he educates Jonas about the past and awakens him to the possibilities of the future.


Of course, The Giver is just a story. But every day in schools across the country, educators act as real-life Givers to their students, imparting knowledge and inspiring them to achieve their potential. Our teachers and librarians positively impact countless young lives, and the importance of their work cannot be overstated.

As a way to give back to the educator community, Walden Media is pleased to offer free downloads of the learning resources we’ve created as companion materials to The Giver book and movie. (Click here for materials.)

We’re also thrilled to be hosting a sweepstakes exclusively for education professionals, with the GRAND PRIZE of a trip for two to the New York premiere of The Giver, including round-trip airfare, lodging for two nights, meals, and transportation to and from the event. The sweepstakes is open to full-time teachers, school or public librarians, educational paraprofessionals, district professionals, after-school leaders, or registered home school parents.
