Extra Yard for Teachers Contest

Did you know that teachers spend over $700 a year out-of-pocket to cover expenses for their classrooms? From school supplies to books and technology, 95% of teachers don't have the budget needed to cover all their classroom costs for the school year.

Thanks to College Football Foundation, the A-Club randomly selected FOUR Arizona Letterwinners as prize recipients for the 2022 Extra Yard for Teachers contest. Each winner will receive a prize that allows them to cover some of their classroom expenses, so they can focus on providing the best education and experience for their students.
