Over $100,000 Awarded to Schools in Honor of Norwegian Joy’s Debut in North America During Teacher Appreciation Week
Norwegian Cruise Line awarded cruises to 30 educators as well as thousands of dollars to their schools as part of its Giving Joy campaign, an effort to reward teachers who inspire students and bring joy into the classroom.
The month-long campaign, which recognized the powerful connection between travel and education, launched in advance of the newly revitalized Norwegian Joy’s North American inaugural sailing during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10, 2019).
The 30 teachers with the most votes won a seven-day cruise for two and were provided with airfare and accommodations for an award ceremony in Seattle on May 3, 2019. There, at the event hosted by Norwegian Cruise Line President and CEO Andy Stuart and nationally syndicated radio personality Elvis Duran, the three grand prize finalists were awarded with $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 for their schools.
