It’s nice when your work gets recognized so we are pleased to share that your lottery was just named a “Champion for Children.”
The award came from the North Carolina Foundation for Public School Children. The foundation recognized the lottery for the significant impact it makes on the lives of children in North Carolina and the support it provides to public schools.
Just as the lottery raises money for a good cause, so does the foundation.
It provides funds for its Future Teacher Scholarships, its N.C. Teacher Cadet program for high school students exploring a career in teaching; and its Children’s Fund that supplies an array of materials and services for public school children in need, such as eyeglasses, hearing aids, medical and dental services, clothing, and school supplies.
At the lottery, all the money raised by your play of lottery games goes to support public education.
This year, the money goes to:
- Building new schools and repairing older ones
- Providing financial aid to North Carolinians to attend state universities and community colleges
- Giving a free academic preschool experience to “at-risk’ four-year-olds in the NC Pre-K program
- Supporting all public schools, helping with the costs of support staff and school transportation.
You can find out how the money helps your county on our Education page.
The privilege of education is enshrined in our state constitution and the lottery and its staff is proud to do its part to raise funds needed to maintain that right.
