Ing Unsung Heroes Program
The insurance Company’s program annually recognizes K-12 educators in the United States for their innovative teaching methods, creativity, and ability to positively influence the children they teach. Begun in 1995, the program was a way for the Company to demonstrate its commitment to the education community. Grants are given to K-12 educators utilizing new teaching methods and techniques that improve learning. Each year, 100 finalists are selected to receive a $2,000 grant, payable to both the winning teacher and his/her school. At least one grant is awarded in each of the 50 states, provided at least one qualified application was received from each state. Winners are selected by Scholarship America, a national nonprofit educational support and student aid service organization. Of the 100 finalists, three are selected for additional financial awards: $25,000 for first place; $10,000 for second place; and $5,000 for third place. Additional information and an online application can be found on the Web site.
