The Fargo Force announced today that the third annual Midco Dash 4 Cash promotion on March 7th helped to donate nearly $6000 back to local teachers for use in their classrooms.
The Dash 4 Cash contest is designed to give money back to local teachers in the community in a fun and entertaining way. To be considered for the promotion, teachers submitted essays to the Fargo Force detailing what they intended the funds to be used towards within their individual classrooms. Ten compassionate teachers, with their students in mind, were chosen for this year’s dash. They were chosen from ten different districts within a 45 miles radius of Fargo. This year, several teachers dashed with the intent of purchasing STEM resources in their classrooms.
Annual Dash 4 Cash game sponsor, Midco, provided $5,000 in cash for the promotion. Teachers collected anywhere from $348-594 each. An additional $900 dollars was gained through a yearly ticket fundraiser held for the chosen teachers. The top three teachers were also awarded cash incentives for the highest number of tickets sold.
For teachers wanting to participate and apply next season, stay tuned to the Fargo Force website next fall when the promotional schedule for the 2020-2021 season gets released.
