Do you know a teacher who goes above and beyond? The Baltimore Ravens Touchdown for Teachers program, presented by M&T Bank, recognizes local teachers for outstanding service to their schools and communities.
The top 5 teachers will be chosen based on one or more of the following criteria: amount of involvement in the school and/or community (ex: volunteering, coaching, after school programs, etc.), degree of positive impact on the school and/or community, and having demonstrated a strong commitment to education in the school and/or community.
Those selected will be honored during the Ravens Flock Festival at M&T Bank Stadium in April.
The grand prize winner, selected from the group of finalists, will receive $2,000 in grant funds, payable to his/her school or district and a classroom visit by a Ravens’ coach or player, accompanied by Ravens mascot Poe.
The four remaining finalists will each receive $500 in grant funds, payable to their school or district. Every nominated educator will receive a certificate of recognition from the Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank.
Educators must be nominated through the application form that can be completed online at www.baltimoreravens.com/ravensflock/contests. Deadline for submissions is April 6. Nominations are open to all Maryland teachers. The five finalists and eventual grand prize winner will be selected from a panel of community members and school officials, with the assistance of Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank staff.
