Karma for the Classroom – Recognizing Exceptional Teachers

Teachers and educators have always played an important role in shaping young leaders and helping students get involved in service. Social media has also become an important tool that helps young leaders find their voice. We want to combine the two and give students all across the country an opportunity to recognize the amazing teachers who have gone above and beyond to create good karma in their classroom, and in the world around us.

Karma for Cara is inviting students to use social media to nominate an outstanding teacher, so we can recognize their hard work and dedication. The top teachers will receive a $2,000 grant to support their classrooms, club, or school project.
