Teacher Appreciation Week: Prizes Galore for Our Favorite People: Teachers!

While our team celebrates Oklahoma teachers year round, May is the month where we take time on a national scale to acknowledge our teachers and the critical role each of you play everyday in the lives of our children.

While our team celebrates Oklahoma teachers year round, May is the month where we take time on a national scale to acknowledge our teachers and the critical role each of you play everyday in the lives of our children. And because we want to demonstrate our gratitude for the incredibly hard work you do, we've put together some exciting prizes and contests this week and during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11). So keep reading for all the details!

  • #Tacos4Teachers: This contest ends this Thursday, so if you haven't already entered, don't delay! We have teamed up with Ted's Cafe Escondido to offer three MEMBER schools--1 rural, 1 suburban and 1 urban--the chance to win a free lunch for your staff. What do you have to do? 1) Gather some or all of your staff together, and in the form of a picture, tell us why your staff deserves a Ted's lunch more than anybody else. You can create a meme based on the picture, or you can just use your combined creativity to produce a photo that demonstrates why you need Ted's! 2) Visit our Facebook page and post your photo in the comments section of the contest post that is pinned to the top of our page. 3) The final step is to have your community vote for your picture. The pictures with the most likes WINS! We will be announcing the winners during our #FeelGoodFriday Facebook Live video around 9 a.m. this Friday, so good luck!
  • Teacher Appreciation Week contests: During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7-11), we will be posting a contest on our Facebook page and will be giving away some pretty awesome prizes each day. So make sure you swing by Facebook each morning and participate. You don't want to miss out!
