Whether in the classroom or working virtually, teachers are being asked to come up with new methods for helping students learn. To celebrate and reward Florida teachers who have or are developing new and original approaches to teaching during the pandemic, State Farm ® is here to assist!
Teachers in Florida are invited to submit their innovative teaching ideas. State Farm ® Teacher Assist will accept two hundred submissions and 40 will be selected as grant recipients. Each teacher who is selected will receive a $2,500 grant to implement or support their creative projects.
The program launches on January 11, 2021 at 4:00 PM (local time)and concludes when up to 200 submissions are reached or January 15 at 11:59 PM. Teachers can prepare now by going to the website to download the rules and get their answers ready for the following three questions on the entry form:
- If you receive a $2,500 grant, how will you use the funding to resolve your challenges?
- What opportunities will this funding help your students realize?
- How can the program be replicated by teachers at other schools?
After the 200 submissions are reached, the State Farm Review Committee will score all the submissions to identify the 40 winners. The winning teachers will be announced the week of Feb. 1, 2021 on State Farm ® Teacher Assist. The teacher’s school will receive the $2,500 grant for the teacher to implement their ideas.
“Teachers innovate on a daily basis to overcome challenges in their classrooms and this year has required even more creativity than usual,” said Annette Martinez, State Farm Senior Vice President. “We are proud to offer a program that helps them reach their goals for their students.
We ask everyone to share this opportunity with Florida teachers. For additional details, visit State Farm ® Teacher Assist: https://newsroom.statefarm.com/state-farm-teacher-assist-homepage.
