(Joplin, MO) – For the fifth consecutive year, Arvest Bank will honor educators throughout its footprint by conducting its “We Love Teachers” campaign. This year, Arvest will award 157 teachers with a total of $78,500 in prize money. The Joplin region, serving more than ten communities, will award eleven local teachers with a $500 cash prize.
The decision to award 157 $500 gifts to individual teachers was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when they face exceptional challenges. All prizes will go to teachers who work at state-funded schools and are to be used for classroom needs.
To nominate a teacher to receive one of the $500 prizes, look for an Arvest Bank Facebook post about this contest during the week of October 5-11, then select the link in the post to complete a nomination form. More contest rules and details are available on Arvest’s Facebook page.
Please take a moment to nominate a deserving local teacher for one of our $500 awards!
