This winter, the College Football Playoff Foundation’s flagship celebration event for teachers, the Extra Yard for Teachers, is heading to New Orleans. Join us on Saturday, January 11 at The Fillmore New Orleans for the live show featuring a talk by the National Teacher of the Year Rodney Robinson, the final round of an epic Battle of the Bands competition, and a headline performance by teacher-turned-comedian Eddie B.

The event, which is open to and free for, all educators, will offer all in attendance the chance to win giveaways including a pair of tickets to the national championship. Additionally, we will announce the school that will win a library/media room makeover valued at $50,000. Ending the evening with an after party, teachers will have the chance to connect with peers from the Summit and the 2019 State Teachers of the Year from all 50 states and incorporated territories. a
