The Ohio Lottery Release Detail

Press Release


COLUMBUS -The Ohio Lottery’s Partners in Education program held its annual School of the Year drawing on Thursday, May 19, 2011. One winner was selected - Hamilton Township High School in Franklin County.
The Rangers will receive an in-school celebration event in early September 2011, which could include entertainment, prizes from Lottery’s education sponsors, a School of the Year trophy and a gift card for school supplies. The Lottery’s Partners in Education Coordinator is working with school’s principal to finalize the details of the event.
Hamilton Township High was entered in the School of the Year drawing because they participated in the Lottery’s Partners in Education program throughout the 2010/2011 school year. Participation means nominating K through 12 teachers and students for monthly Teacher of the Month and Academic All Star awards, respectively, from September through May. Participation is open to every school in Ohio. Every school that participated during the 2010/2011 school year was entered in the drawing as many times as they nominated. The program received 277 total nominations this past year from 70 different schools.
Hamilton Township High nominated eight students and eight teachers, so they had sixteen entries in the drawing. Two of their teachers, Robert Lanthorn and Michael Morbitzer, were winners. In fact, Hamilton Township High, along with all the schools in their district, made the Partners in Education program a part of their monthly routine, nominating teachers and students every month.
The Partners in Education program was started in 2007 to recognize and reward outstanding teachers and students from all over Ohio.
