Help Monte Vista High School Teacher Win $2,500 Grant

Read on to see how to vote for physics teacher Scott Getty in the 'Thank a Million Teachers' campaign.

Parents in Alamo are trying to help a local high school physics teacher to win a $2,500 grant. 

Scott Getty, who teaches at Monte Vista High School, is in the Top 20 in the 'Thank a Million Teachers' competition sponsored by Farmers Insurance. 

According to the 'Thank a Million Teachers'  website, the grant money will help pay for classroom supplies and professional certifications.

The following is information provided by parent Melody Thompson on how to vote for Getty:

Scott Getty, our physics teacher who we have supported to write and win a $2,500 grant in the Thank a Million Teachers campaign is still in the running!  He is in the top 20 and remains only in place 14 steps - behind the sixth place teacher.  The top SIX teachers in each region win the grant.  Scott's proposal, which you can read under his name, is to purchase 2 high speed quality cameras to record experiments to keep students interested in Science and is exceptional!

We need only about 100 people to cast a vote for him today and the next 13 days in order for him to come up to a winning place for the grant.

Please vote today and set a reminder on your calendar or smart phone to vote (24/7 hours available) at https://www.thankamillionteachers.com/vote-for-a-proposal/vote-for-a-proposal-form/   every day the rest of this month. This seems to be what his competitors are doing in different parts of the region.

To cast the vote it only takes going to the aforementioned website, clicking on
"GETTY" in the teachers name category and hit submit, inputting your email address (will NOT be marketed to, for verification of voting history only), clicking you are over 18 and a secret code immediately depicted on the screen
then, go down to the cast your vote now section  and submit behind

There is only the month of May remaining, but you may cast a vote every day, weekends included. There is NO OTHER COMMITMENT - no opening your email or Facebook to any mailings from the sponsor at all - just good intent and a last minute effort to get those over 18 in the community to support him.
