Any good tips on how to get more people to participate?

Our schools do it, but I don't work on it.
Please, please, please, don't put pressure on the kids with "incentives."
the coordinator at DD's school sent a boxtop blown up to 8 1/2x11; I've heard so many people say, "oh, THAT's what I'm supposed to be looking for!"
|Our former treasurer had a brilliant idea:
They put out an old fish tank that they divided down the middle. One side was for the Oregon Ducks (one of the major college teams in the state) and the other for the Oregon State Beavers (the other major college team). Kids put the boxtops in either the Ducks or the Beavers side and then they were tallied weekly. The contest ended on the "Civil War" day (the day when the Ducks played the Beavers). The kids were REALLY into that.
They also had classroom contests the month of school and are doing something in the spring.
