$2,500 Grants for Innovative Teaching Ideas

State Farm® Teacher Assist

Whether in the classroom or working virtually, teachers are being asked to develop new methods for helping students learn. To celebrate and reward innovative approaches to teaching during the pandemic, State Farm is here to assist!

Teachers in California are invited to submit their innovative teaching ideas. State Farm Teacher Assist will accept 200 submissions and select 40 grant recipients. Each winning teacher’s school will receive a $2,500 grant to be used for the creative project submitted by the winning teacher.

The program's application period opens Jan. 11, 2021, at 4 p.m (local time). It concludes with receipt of the 200th submission or Jan. 15 at 11:59 p.m. Teachers can prepare now. Go to the website to download and read the rules and develop answers to the following entry form questions:

  • If you receive a $2,500 grant, how will you use the funding to resolve your challenges?

  • What opportunities will this funding help your students realize?

  • How can the program be replicated by teachers at other schools?

The State Farm Review Committee will score the first 200 submissions to identify 40 winners. The winning teachers will be announced the week of Feb. 1, 2021, on the State Farm Teacher Assist website.

“Teachers innovate on a daily basis to overcome challenges in their classrooms. This year has required even more creativity than usual,” said Annette Martinez, State Farm senior vice president. “We are proud to offer a program that helps them reach their goals for their students.”
