Do you know a teacher who is a hero in the classroom? Nominate them for the Symetra and Seattle Seahawks Heroes in the Classroom Program. Selected teachers are recognized in front of their students and peers at surprise in-school presentations and receive a $2,000 donation for classroom supplies. In addition, they receive tickets to a Seahawks home game and are acknowledged during an on-field presentation at CenturyLink Field.

Teachers may be nominated by parents, staff, students or community members. The winners are selected based on their ability to make a real difference in students' lives, to go above and beyond in their day-to-day responsibilities and to help students build life skills.
