Norwegian Cruise Line announce their 100 Giving Joy campaign winners

Norwegian Cruise Line have announced their 100 ‘Giving Joy’ campaign winners.

The cruise company unveiled the lucky teachers getting a five-day cruise holiday on their newest vessel, the Norwegian Prima on its maiden voyage between 27th and 31st October.

One of the perks is a performance from Kelly Clarkson, the Grammy Award winning pop star, who was billed a “wonderful friend” to the company.

Harry Sommer, the president and CEO of the Norwegian Cruise Line said: "Not only has Kelly been a wonderful friend of our Cruise Line since joining our NCL family as godmother to Norwegian Encore, but she has also been a steadfast supporter of educators through the years. We all have a teacher who holds a special place in our hearts, and Norwegian's Giving Joy program provides a platform for us to publicly recognize and provide them with an experience of a lifetime. Kelly shares our strong appreciation for this community of unsung heroes, making her the perfect partner to help us bring this special program to life once again."

In addition to this, they will host an award ceremony for all those being honoured for their contributions to education where the Grand Prize honorees will get their $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 for their schools.

Harry added of their trip: “We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate and reward these classroom warriors with an incredible vacation on board our newest, beautiful ship, Norwegian Prima. Each of these educators dedicate themselves to their students and their communities. Their role is to broaden their students’ horizons with new experiences, and now we are honoured to have the opportunity to do the same for them.”

The competition will reward teachers from across North America with winners hailing from across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

The yearly prize was devised by the company to celebrate the link between travel and education and educators for their work with young people. By the end of 2022, the scheme will have awarded 230 teachers with free trops and donated $235,000.
