Cardinals Win on Sunday Means Teachers Score Grants

SRP’s ‘Touchdowns for Teachers’ Celebrates Educators

The Arizona Cardinals victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday means six lucky teachers will benefit from each Cardinals touchdown scored. For the second season, Salt River Project is partnering with Cardinals Charities on the Touchdowns for Teachers program, which awards grants to two deserving teachers every time the Cardinals score a touchdown for the entire season. After last night’s game, six educators will get a $500 grant for the three touchdowns scored, for a total of $3,000 in grants.

For the 2019-2020 NFL season, SRP Touchdowns for Teachers awarded $40,000 to 80 educators. We look forward to helping more teachers this year,” said Kevin Rolfe, SRP Senior Education Representative. “The SRP Touchdowns for Teachers is a fun way to celebrate all the ways teachers guide the next generation of innovators and leaders, while we are cheering on the home team.”

Teachers who are employed at a public, charter or non-profit private school in SRP service territory or impact areas can sign up now to win. SRP customers are encouraged to share the contest with the teachers in their lives.

SRP is a leader and supporter of education in Arizona, providing $1.3 million in teacher resources and grants in 2019. From hands-on teacher workshops to grants for educators, SRP supports teachers as they innovate for the future and create classroom environments where everyone can succeed.
