Money & Prizes

Cash prizes for your schools…

$20,000 will be given away this year to area schools.  One of the most important things they can do for our community is help get more funds into area classrooms.  This year $20,000 will be divided among participating schools.  The division of funds is based on number of finalists and number of entries from each school.

Note to schools: Each school with over 50 students that assigns Caring for the Kenai will automatically receive $750.  In addition, students who receive a Semi-Finalist Sponsorship Award will earn $50 for their classrooms.

Cash prizes for students…
The top 12 finalists in the Caring for the Kenai contest receive cash prizes.  These prizes are awarded at the CFK Awards Banquet each April.  This year we are thrilled to be able to award nearly $7,500 in cash prizes to the top students.

2nd Place $1,100
3rd Place $900
4th Place $750
