Honor a Teacher and They Could Win Up to $500

Our Teacher Appreciation Campaign is Now Closed

May is National Teacher Appreciation Month, and we want to thank you for helping us start it off right! If the last few months have taught us anything, it’s that teachers deserve so much more credit for all they do than they are given.

That’s why we’re pleased to honor ten teachers, voted for by you, to receive prizes in appreciation. Stay tuned for the winner announcement!

Prizes Include

each for 1st – 5th place winners

each for 6th – 10th place winners

We’ll announce the winners at noon on Facebook Live on May 5th, so don’t forget to tune in!
