Arvest to award $500 gifts to 157 area teachers

For the fifth consecutive year, Arvest Bank will honor educators throughout its footprint by conducting its “We Love Teachers” campaign.

This year, Arvest will award 157 teachers with a total of $78,500 in prize money. The Joplin Region, serving more than 10 communities, will award 11 local teachers with $500 cash prizes.

The decision to award $500 gifts to 157 individual teachers was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when they face exceptional challenges. All prizes will go to teachers who work at state-funded schools and are to be used for classroom needs.

To nominate a teacher to receive one of the $500 prizes, look for the Arvest Bank Facebook post about this contest during the week of Oct. 5-11, then select the link in the post to complete a nomination form. More contest rules and details are available on Arvest’s Facebook page.

Community members are encouraged to take a moment to nominate a deserving local teacher for one of the $500 awards.
