My Coke Rewards for Schools, launched last year, continues during the 2009-2010 school year. A Back-to-School Sweepstakes, which runs through Aug. 31 will also enter schools – and one lucky family of four – for a chance to win a free movie screening of “More Than A Game,” the story of courage and teamwork featuring NBA All Star and MVP LeBron James and his high school teammates. Winning schools will get the screening in their hometown. The winning family of four will get a trip to New York City for the movie premiere on Sept. 22.

Families can participate in My Coke Rewards by going to and donating points. Codes can be found on more than 200 participating packages of Coca-Cola products including Sprite, Dasani and Minute Maid.
