Farmers Insurance "Thank Montana Teachers"

Posted: Updated:

Farmers Insurance is launching the University of Farmers Education Foundation. They are on a mission to thank every teacher in Montana for everything they have done.

"Montana was a perfect place to start, cause it is a great state with great educators and we are just so proud to be able to help them out a little bit with our grand funding and just thank them." says Randy Rice, National Manager of Education Programs for Farmers Insurance.

The "Thank Montana Teachers" program works by students or anyone who wants to thank their most influential Montana teacher on the Farmers web site. Each Montana teacher thanked on the web site will be able to submit their name during the month of October for a chance to win $2,500  grant awarded in December.

"First I think its exciting Farmers chose Montana to pilot this, and I did an education tour where it was all around the state, one of the things I said to the kids that had nothing to do with this, is to make sure to recognize the roll that your teachers are playing." says Governor Steve Bullock.

At the end of November the top ten vote getters will be tabulated and announced in December.

"It's a great way for just take a moment and remember that teacher even if they have passed away, even if they are no longer with us, take a moment and go online and just do it. Say thank you to this person." continued Randy Rice.
