Chipotle Is Giving Away $100,000 To Teachers. Here's How To Win

Calling all teachers! In the spirit of back-to-school season, Chipotle is giving away $100,000 on Venmo to help pay for school supplies (via the Chipotle website). As of August 10, teachers will have the chance to get their classrooms student-ready with up to $599 in new supplies. The giveaway is open to teachers (ages 18 and up) in all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. for the 2021-2022 school year.

Teachers interested in entering the contest will need to head over to Chipotle's Twitter account @ChipotleTweets and reply to the pinned tweet dated August 10 with a photo of their back-to-school shopping receipt. In the caption, feel free to include what grade you teach and why you love being a teacher, but you must include the hashtag #SuppliesContest in order to fully enter. Selected winners will be contacted through direct messaging on Twitter and reimbursed through the Venmo app.

Chipotle didn't specify how many teachers would be included in the $100,000 giveaway. But since individual reimbursements cannot exceed $599, that means at least 166 teachers should be selected. The contest is officially open, so teachers, start tweeting your back-to-school receipts!

Chipotle customers can donate to a separate school supply fund for teachers

As kids and educational professionals head back to school, Chipotle is financially supporting teachers to stock their classrooms with free school supplies. Now more than ever, teachers are excited to get back to in-school learning and greet their students face-to-face. However, in-classroom learning requires lots of sanitary (especially now) and general school supplies, which can be a heavy financial burden.

Chipotle is giving back through its $100,000 Venmo giveaway, but the Mexican grill chain is encouraging customers to participate in the Supply A Teacher Program by rounding up their Chipotle order to the next highest dollar (via the Chipotle website). Any donated change received by the Supply A Teacher Program will be used to support teachers in underserved schools with classroom supply essentials for their students. Patrons can round up their orders via the Chipotle app or online.

Over the years, Chipotle has raised over $8 million in round-up orders for organizations and foundations such as The Trevor Project, National Urban League, Kids In Need Foundation, and Folds of Honor. If you feel so inclined, round up your order the next time you're grabbing a burrito or burrito bowl
