Back 2 School Illinois launches school supplies contest for Chicago schools

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Back 2 School Illinois will launch a contest on April 1 to win year's worth of school supplies for every student in that school. Two Chicago schools can win "Back 2 School" supply kits for every student in the school.

The kits will be packed with supplies students often need for school but often cannot afford.

The Chicago-based nonprofit is accepting nominations for schools that serve low-income students.

Applications for 2018 must be postmarked by July 24 to be eligible for the "Win School Supplies for Every Student" contest.

The two winning Chicago schools will be notified by August 7.
