Help OnPoint Honor Our Community's Best Educators.

OnPoint Community Credit Union has always understood that investing in education is one of the best ways to build thriving communities. That's why we created the OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education. In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, the program will award up to $85,000 to local teachers and their schools. Here's what selected teachers and schools will win:

  • Educator of the Year - Grades K-8 - One teacher representing grades K-8 will have his or her mortgage paid for one full year and receive a $2,500 donation to their school for resources and supplies.
  • Educator of the Year - Grades 9-12 - One teacher representing grades 9-12 will have his or her mortgage paid for one full year and receive a $2,500 donation to their school for resources and supplies.
  • Two Finalists - One each from grades K-8 & 9-12 - Finalists will each receive a $5,000 cash award plus an additional $1,500 to their schools for resources and supplies.
  • Circle of Excellence - Six educators will each receive a $1,500 cash award plus an additional $1,000 for their schools for resources and supplies.
  • Community Builder - Four schools will receive $1,000 for a special project of their choice. A fifth school, selected by community votes, will receive $2,000 for a special project of their choice.
