The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: August Edition

We're heading back to school in the August edition of the Visual Thesaurus crossword puzzle. Figure out the hidden theme and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

The shaded squares in this puzzle should tip you off that there's something special with the answers that contain them. They have something in common, and it relates to the "back to school" season. Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the hidden theme of the puzzle by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the hidden theme, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is September 21, 2012. Have fun and good luck!
