“Did I really win or is this a joke?” asked Laura Bebout from Rickover Junior High in Sauk Village, Illinois. As you can imagine, this special education teacher was a little unsure when she received the news from the CITGO Fueling Good program coordinator. Laura was one of 16,000 sweepstake entries for a chance to receive a full-day of professional development from Steve Spangler and his STEM workshop team. Plus, Laura received a $5,000 gift certificate for related school supplies. “Yes… you are the winner!”
CITGO created the Fueling Education program in 2012 to help foster educational opportunities in classrooms across the nation. Since then, CITGO has donated more than $350,000 in much-needed classroom supplies with support from customers. This year alone, more than 100 teachers are being awarded vouchers for school supplies.
