ING Unsung Heroes Program Invites K-12 Educators to Apply for 2015 Class Project Awards

Through its Unsung Heroes awards program, financial services company ING annually recognizes K-12 educators in the United States for their innovative teaching methods, creative educational projects, and ability to positively influence the children they teach.

Each year, one hundred educators are selected to receive awards of $2,000 each to help fund their innovative class projects. At least one award will be granted in each of the fifty United States, provided one or more qualified applications are received from each state. Of the one hundred finalists, three will be selected for additional financial awards. First place will receive $25,000; second place will receive $10,000; and the third-place winner will receive $5,000. All awards must be used to further the projects within the school or school system.

All K-12 education professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the U.S. and be a full-time educator, teacher, principal, paraprofessional, or classified staff member working on a project with demonstrated effectiveness in improving student learning. Previous recipients of ING Unsung Heroes awards are not eligible to apply for another award.

Complete program guidelines, the application form, and information on previously funded projects are available at the ING website.
