Awards of up to $5,000 to Oklahoma, North Dakota, Texas, and New Mexico classroom teachers and educational professionals and personnel to recognize innovation in education. Funds may be used to purchase resources for the classroom or for professional development opportunities. Priority consideration is given to teachers in Marathon Oil’s operating areas.
Teachers are invited to apply or be nominated by members of their community to receive a grant to support the purchase of classroom resources, such as books, activity/lab materials, and technology, or personal professional development.
The hope is that, through this program, teacher retention will be increased by demonstrating support for the people who are responsible for developing the next generation of leaders, or unconventional thinkers. Marathon Oil also hopes to encourage collaboration by asking the winning teachers to share their innovative ideas with all the teachers who apply.
Applications will be judged based on the following criteria:
