More than 130 lucky teachers are receiving $150 classroom grants as part of STCU’s efforts to welcome back staff at schools in Eastern and Central Washington and North Idaho.

[october 6, 2021]

The not-for-profit credit union, which was founded by teachers, is honoring its roots by awarding the grants to 134 educators – a total of $20,100 to winners drawn at random. Winners can spend their $150 grant on anything that will enhance students’ classroom experience, whether a basic need or something special.

Continuing a long tradition, STCU provided meals, refreshments, and door prizes at back-to-school events for educators and other staff in public school districts in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

The online drawing was open to teachers, counselors, and similar classroom-based positions at public and private districts served by Washington ESDs 101, 123, and 171, or in the eight northernmost counties of Idaho. It is the eighth year that STCU has offered the grant drawings, which have been greatly expanded in recent years to include more recipients.
