‘Teachers Who Shine’ Awards Call for Nominations February 25 – April 1

TUCSON, Ariz. –This spring, for the fourth consecutive year, Mister Car Wash will be recognizing teachers who go above and beyond to inspire their students to shine. Nominations are now open in every community Mister Car Wash serves. Every finalist will receive a cash grant for their classroom up to $1,000 plus an Unlimited Car Wash membership for one year.

To nominate someone for a ‘Teachers Who Shine’ Award:

  • Go on line to
  • Submit your completed nomination by 12:00am MST April 1, 2019.
  • Tell your friends to do the same. Multiple heart-felt submissions from a variety of nominators – students, parents, fellow teachers, administrators, family and friends – increase a teacher’s chance of being recognized.

As Mister Car Wash continues to add locations across the US, so expands its community impact. Last spring alone, the company awarded 30 teachers a total of $46,000 in cash and prizes. Here’s what some of them had to say:

“I used my grant to remodel my classroom to offer more flexible seating and a more welcoming environment for my students. They love it,” said Chasidy Burton of Nashville, TN.

“I used the grant for recess playground equipment for all our students to use. I also used part of the money for Physical Education equipment for my K – 5th Grade students,” said Amy Hutcheson, of Marion, IA.

Amanda Knutson of Tucson, AZ said, “Having companies like Mister Car Wash choose to positively support education by investing their employees’ time, energy and appreciation to pull this all together, along with a grant, is incredible and sends a positive message to our class, school, and community.”

“We admire teachers who inspire their students to shine and we look forward to recognizing a record number of outstanding teachers again this year,” said John Lai, CEO.
