Pac-12 and CFP Foundation celebrates Big Day and Extra Yard for Teachers Week
In partnership with the College Football Foundation's Extra Yard for Teachers, the Pac-12 Conference and several Pac-12 universities took part in #BigDayforTeachers on Monday, Sept. 14 and all week for Extra Yard for Teachers Week by recognizing local teachers within their communities in the largest single-day effort of community impact ever undertaken by the extended college football family.
In total across the efforts, more than $4 million in grants, direct aid and desperately needed resources are expected to be awarded to teachers and educators.
We're proud to take part in #BigDayforTeachers! To celebrate, we chose to recognize and honor a few teachers who have persevered through being displaced from their homes due to wildfires with @DonorsChoose certificates.

We’re so proud of our Wildcat teachers who continue to make a difference in the community and in their classroom. Tonight, we randomly selected a pair of Arizona Letterwinners to receive $1900 from the College Football Playoff Foundation. For all the teachers who joined us tonight, we can’t thank you enough for all that you do, especially during this time. Stay tuned as we spotlight our winners later this week. Stay Safe & Bear Down. #ExtraYardWeek #CFPExtraYard #BigDay #TogetherWeBearDown
