Teacher Promotion

Sgroi Financial wanted to reward the hard-working teachers of Western New York with our 2nd Annual Teacher Promotion. Two lucky teachers were selected to win $750 towards their classrooms. This $750 is theirs to make their job and the classroom experience for their students that much better this year.

The response was overwhelming. WNYers from all across the area nominated teachers — over 1,100 nominations rolled in, with more than 100 school districts represented! Watch here to see Rob Banks and Pat Sgroi pull the winners!

Congratulations to Alyssa Braun from Olmsted High School and Erin Weaver from Native American Magnet School #19!

If you know of a teacher who deserves to be rewarded, simply nominate them in the form below. If you ARE a teacher, we of course want to hear from you too! Nominate yourself or a coworker to receive the supplies and funding. Winners will be announced on Friday August 16 on our website and Facebook page. Entrant must teach in one of the 8 Western New York counties. Official Rules.
