Arvest Bank is pleased to announce we have selected and notified winners of our recent effort aimed at honoring teachers throughout our four-state footprint. This year, 131 educators are being awarded a total of more than $65,000 in prize money.

The decision to award 131 $500 gifts to individual teachers was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when some schools continue to face budget challenges. All prizes are going to teachers who work at state-funded schools.

This is the fourth consecutive year Arvest has run a campaign to honor teachers, and we received a record number of nominations. After receiving 2,280 nominations in 2018, this year’s campaign generated 3,394 nominations.
