Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education program accepting nominations for outstanding students and teachers

The Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education program celebrates both teachers and students who work hard in their classrooms and communities. During the academic school year, the Ohio Lottery accepts statewide nominations of outstanding teachers and students. Every month, the Ohio Lottery holds a random drawing of all nominees and awards a Teacher of the Month and an Academic All Star in each of the Ohio Lottery’s nine regions.

Award recipients receive Partners in Education merchandise, a gift card and certificate. The Ohio Lottery’s website and social media channels also highlight the awardees.

Every May, the Ohio Lottery holds a drawing that includes all the schools that took part in the program and awards a School of the Year. The School of the Year receives a gift card, trophy and autographed team merchandise from major and minor league sports teams across Ohio. Schools can use the merchandise for fundraising efforts.

The Partners in Education program runs every academic school year, from September to May. Anyone can nominate a deserving Ohio teacher or student through the Ohio Lottery’s website. It’s fast, free and easy to submit an online nomination. This video shows how to submit a nomination. Contact Molly Fanta with questions about Partners in Education at (216) 774-5739.

The Ohio Lottery has contributed more than $29 billion to education since 1974. For more information about the Ohio Lottery and its contribution to education, visit the Ohio Lottery website.
