Bank looks to honor teachers

-A A +A

Do you have a favorite teacher? If so, you can nominate that person for a chance to win $250 and two-night stay at Beacher’s Lodge in St. Augustine. There will only be one winning teacher from Levy County.

SunState Federal Credit Union has set out to recognize and reward good teachers in every county it serves and is running a contest on its Facebook page at Facebook.com/SunStateFCU, encouraging people to nominate their favorite teacher.

“Teachers mean so much to our community, we just thought they deserved some recognition,” said Brett Wachtstetter, Online Marketing Representative for SunState Federal Credit Union.  

“We are giving $250 to the person who nominates the winning teacher from each county and $100 to one random voter, because we want to encourage more people to show support for the great teachers taking care of our kids.”

The contest ends on October 31, 2011.
