2016 State Teachers of the Year attend College Football Championship

CCSSO partnership with College Football Playoff Foundation honor Teachers of the Year

 Such an amazing opportunity for Teachers AND for the College Football Playoff Foundation.. 


Dear 2016 Teachers of the Year,

As educators and academic leaders, you make key game-time decisions to advance academic achievement, coach students to become better citizens and people, and advocate on behalf of our next generation.

In honor of your dedication and hard work, the Council of Chief State School Officers and College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation are pleased to present a special opportunity for professional development and a little fun. We would like to host all 56 of the 2016 Teachers of the Year in Tampa, FL for the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.

The CFP Foundation is the charitable arm of the College Football Playoff and supports education and teachers across the country. The CFP Foundation creates multiple partnerships to execute its initiatives and support positive educational outcomes. The Foundation’s primary philanthropic initiative, Extra Yard for Teachers (EYFT), elevates the teaching profession by inspiring and empowering quality teachers through the development and implementation of programs in three key focus areas: direct provision of resources, teacher recognition, and professional development training.

We hope you’ll join us from Friday, Jan. 6 to Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, to participate in a series of events including the Extra Yard for Teachers Summit, Extra Yard 5K, Taste of the Championship, AT&T Playoff Playlist Live!, Playoff Fan Central, and the national championship game. Additional information regarding these events can be found here. Travel and lodging is included.

Thank you again for everything you do for students. We’ll see you on the field!
