Chevron, the Pittsburgh Pirates, Pirates Charities, and the Grable Foundation are teaming up this baseball season with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit,
Intermediate Unit One, and Kidsburgh to recognize teachers from southwestern PA and northern WV. Teachers can be nominated for their exceptional
classroom efforts that have positively impacted Pre-K-12 students.
Running through March 1, online nominations are being accepted for the “All Star Teachers” Program on http://www.pirates.com/allstarteachers.
The organizations will select 18 winning teachers who will receive a $1,000 classroom grant, a personalized Pirates jersey, and on-field recognition
during a Pirates game at PNC Park this season.
Teachers from Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Washington, and Westmoreland counties in PA and Marshall and Ohio Counties
in West Virginia are eligible to be nominated. Of the 18 winning teachers, six elementary, six middle school, and six high school teachers
will be selected.
A committee comprised of members of the contributing organizations will consider the candidates and choose the winning teachers. Each winning teacher
will also be surprised in their classroom later this Spring.
