Teachers were recognized for their achievements today at Phoenix Elementary in Grand Forks.

Sam's Club has a Teacher's Rewards Program giving out 4-point-5-billion dollars to schools across the U.S.

The school picks ten teachers who receive 100-dollars to spend on supplies and items they need in the classroom.

The program has been going on for years and organizers say it's a way to give back.

"I just think it's a good relationship for the community, the small community of Grand Forks. I think these kids are the up and coming leaders in our community and it shows them that a business in town can make an impact." Sam's Club manager Jeff Hartland said.

Teachers say any amount of money helps with buying extra books, supplies and extra items they need for teaching.
