Teacher Appreciation Week: Time to Celebrate YOU!

While our team celebrates Oklahoma teachers year round, May is the month where people come together across the country to acknowledge educators and the critical role each of you plays every single day in the lives of our children. And because we want to demonstrate our gratitude for the incredibly hard work you do (this year especially), we've put together some exciting prizes and contests for Teacher Appreciation Week starting TODAY!

We know how demanding the teaching profession can be on so many levels. This year, though, has taken an extra hard toll on you, and we acknowledge that, knowing no amount of gratitude can ever convey our full appreciation and awe for your tireless and often thankless work. But as a small token and to bring a little fun and sunshine to your days, we will be posting contests on our Facebook page this week to give away some pretty awesome prizes. So make sure you swing by Facebook each day to participate. We'll start each contest at noon and will do the drawings the next morning at 10, so you will have plenty of time to enter. And trust me: you don't want to miss out!

We have such deep respect for the work you do and are proud to support you in any way we can. And this week, we are excited to honor your dedication.
