Again this school year Rick Merrill, an Everett attorney and long time sponsor of MyEverettNews.com, plans to give away $500 a month to honor a Snohomish County teacher.

Here’s everything you need to know to nominate your favorite educator…

As we approach the beginning of the school year, those who have children know that there is an abundant amount of supplies that need to be purchased just to begin the school year on the right foot.  However, it is not just parents that are spending their hard earned cash to prepare for the school year, our local educators can sometimes spend several hundreds or even thousands of dollars of their own money to prepare their classroom for the upcoming school year.  Most of the time, that money spent by the educators is not reimbursed and those educators are just out of the money.

Rick recognizes that our local educators are sacrificing their own hard earned money to help benefit our local students.  Last school year Rick gave away $4000 to deserving local educators and school districts.  Each educator was nominated through our website, then nominations were reviewed monthly, and an educator was selected for the award.  Educators selected received a $500 check made payable to their school for use in the award winner’s classroom, as well as a plaque recognizing them as an educator of the month.

We encourage you to review the previous winners from last school year in our blog.  Then go to our website and nominate an educator that you feel deserves to be awarded $500. One winner will be selected each month, and will be notified by Everett radio station KXA Country Radio. Winners will be asked to come into the station, be presented with a $500 check, a plaque recognizing them as Educator of the Month winner, and will record a brief spot to be aired on KXA Country Radio.

By working together maybe we all can help lessen the financial blow to our local educators and get our future leaders ready for their school year.
