M&T Bank and the Buffalo Bills recently announced the 11th annual Touchdown for Teachers program, which recognizes local educators for their outstanding contributions to their students, schools and communities.
Peers, family, friends and students can submit nominations for educators in western New York.
“We have a great appreciation for the impact local educators have on student lives every day,” said Kim Pegula, president and CEO of Pegula Sports and Entertainment. “Our organization has been honored to join M&T Bank in telling the stories of some of western New York’s most dedicated educators. These men and women deserve significant recognition of their superior work that helps mold the future of our community.”
Two finalists will be selected based on involvement in the school and community, degree of positive impact, and their demonstrated commitment to education. The grand prize winner will receive a surprise visit from a Buffalo Bills player or alumnus, and a $5,000 grant for their school. The runner-up will receive a $1,000 grant.
Nominations are due online by March 29. All nominated teachers will receive a certificate of recognition from the Bills and M&T Bank. The finalists will be notified by April 19.
