Over the last three months we have had the opportunity to visit several local school districts to surprise our Hertrich Cash for Class 2022 winners and their students with a banner and a check.  This year, we were able to fund 40 individual projects totaling awards of almost $40,000!

In addition to funding many classroom needs with Hertrich awards, we also asked the community to vote for their favorite project on social media.  This year our Community Favorite Winners are Daniel Huffman of Benjamin Banneker Elementary School in Milford, Delaware and Randi Merritt of Crisfield Academy & High School in Crisfield, Maryland!

We would like to thank all the educators who submitted a video telling us about a project they needed funding for, and congratulate all our 2022 Hertrich Cash for Class Winners! We are so grateful for everything they do for the students in our community. You are all truly shining stars in our eyes!

If you haven’t had a chance to check out these fun & entertaining videos yet, visit Hertrich Cash for Class to see this year’s entries, and don’t forget to check back next fall for more information on how to submit to our annual Hertrich Cash for Class contest.
