THANK AMERICA'S TEACHERS
THANK YOU, Northern Michigan Teachers!
The Jeffrey Peters Agency is proud to be affiliated with Farmers Insurance, a great company that supports one of our country’s greatest resources – TEACHERS!! Throughout 2017, The Farmers Insurance “Thank America’s Teachers” program will award 180 grants worth $2,500 each. Additionally, 5 grants of $100,000 will also be awarded. That is almost $1,000,000 that will be given back to our educational heros!
As a local agency, we are eager and proud to support local causes such as Rotary and The Downtown Petoskey Farmers Market. We are also able to support teachers (and other professions such as fire/police/military personnel, doctors, registered nurses, accountants, and financial planners to name a few) by providing “affinity discounts” that help reduce policy premiums. For teachers, this affinity discount can put some money back in their pockets and then back into their classrooms as many teachers do.
However, with the “Thank America’s Teachers” grant program, we are excited to support and promote our local Northern Michigan teachers regardless if they are a client of ours! This is purely about them and is an opportunity to help teachers purchase technology, equipment, or materials that will enhance the stellar job they already do with additional top-notch learning experiences for the kids in our communities.
If you would like to show your appreciation and nominate one or more of our Northern Michigan teachers to apply for a grant, below are the steps to do so. And if you are a teacher that is interested, you can even nominate yourself! Once nominated, the teacher then submits a brief proposal for review. If that teacher is selected as a finalist, then America – and specifically Northern Michigan – will cast their votes to determine the winning grant award recipients.
STEP 1: Give us a heads up
For the teacher you would like to nominate, please enter the teacher’s name, their e-mail address, the name of the school at which they teach, and the city in which the school is located in the contact form below.
*** This isn’t a required step in the Thank America’s Teachers program, but as your local agency, it lets us know who you are nominating and will allow us to specifically promote our Northen Michigan teachers through social media and other marketing channels. It could just be that extra mile of support and encouragement to vote that puts our teachers in the Winners Circle! Thanks for going that extra mile with us!
STEP 2: Nominate your favorite teachers with a “Thank You!”
Once you submit your heads up to us with the contact form above, a page will display containing instructions and a link to click to officially submit your teacher nomination to the Thank America’s Teachers grant program’s website. You will provide the same information as you did above, but will also be able to include a personal “Thank You” note to each of the Northern Michigan teachers that you nominate.
STEP 3: Wash, Rinse, Repeat!
If you would like to nominate more than one teacher, simply return to this page and begin with Step 1 again. There are no limits to the number of teachers that can be nominated, but the deadline for teachers to submit their brief grant proposals is September 27th so be sure to get your nominations submitted ASAP!
BONUS STEP: Help us promote our Northern Michigan teachers!
As an agency, our office will frequently (but not obnoxiously) promote and encourage our social media followers to vote for their local Northern Michigan teachers. You can help those teachers, too, by following us on Instagram and Facebook and then sharing our “voting encouragement” posts with your friends and followers, too.
This promotion is not limited to teachers just in Northern Michigan. You may nominate a teacher anywhere the contest is valid. No purchase or payment is necessary to enter or win. A free insurance quote or purchase from a Farmers agent or any of its affiliates, or payment of any kind, does not and will not increase the odds of winning. This is just a great way to give back to our teachers, regardless from whom they receive their insurance! CLICK HERE for official contest rules, terms, and conditions
