Did you notice any difference in the traffic this morning? I did, and when I arrived at work a wise co-worker pointed out that the school year started today for various school districts. Oh yes, the roads do get busier when summer break ends!
It may mean more traffic for me, but for the Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education program it means that it’s time to start recognizing the great students and teachers we have in the Buckeye State.
With your nominations for Academic All Star and Teacher of the Month, partners in Education has recognized and rewarded hundreds of Ohio students and teachers since the program began in 2007. We want to recognize those K-12 students and teachers achieving excellence in and out of the classroom and inspiring others along the way.
Academic All Star and Teacher of the Month winners receive a certificate of excellence and a prize package from the Lottery and our sponsors for their achievement. The winners’ stories are also posted to our Partners in Education website.
The program ramps up in September, and we will recognize one student and teacher from each of the Lottery’s nine geographic regions throughout the state. You can nominate an outstanding student or teacher by clicking the link below. http://www.ohiolottery.com/SupportingEducation/Academic-All-Stars
Next month we will travel to Hamilton Township High School in Columbus to present the award for The Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education School of the Year! Your school, your student, or your teacher could be next!
Best wishes on a great school year!
