For the third consecutive year, Arvest Bank will honor teachers throughout the state of Oklahoma by awarding 36 educators with a total of $18,000 in prize money. One $500 award will go to a teacher from Washington County. Last year, Tina Steele at BHS was a recipient.

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 Oct. 15-21. Include the teacher’s name, school name, city, and one sentence describing why that teacher deserves to win.

Arvest stated that the decision to award 36 $500 gifts to individual teachers from 29 counties was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when many schools continue to face budget challenges. All prizes will go to teachers who work at state-funded schools.

“At Arvest, we understand the critical roles teachers play for our children, our communities, and our future,” Arvest marketing manager Annah Fischer said. “We appreciate how hard Oklahoma’s teachers work, and we hope these awards reflect our sincere gratitude for them.”

Counties included are: Adair, Canadian, Cherokee, Cleveland, Comanche, Cotton, Craig, Creek, Grady, Delaware, LeFlore, Mayes, McClain, McCurtain, McIntosh, Muskogee, Nowata, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Ottawa, Payne, Pittsburg, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Sequoyah, Stephens, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington.
