The Big 12 Champions for Life campaign highlights student-athlete’s life-changing stories through the opportunities that a scholarship provides. The young women and men given the opportunity to compete in their chosen sport embody the defining characteristics of a champion: leadership, perseverance, community service, and discipline. Inspiring stories of student-athletes representing each of the conference’s ten universities will be shared throughout the 2017-2018 academic year. Serving as a role model both on the field and in the classroom, each of the student-athletes selected in the campaign truly encapsulate what being a champion for life is all about.
Champions for Life
The Big 12 Conference, in partnership with the College Football Playoff (CFP) Foundation’s Extra Yard for Teachers (EYFT) platform, has announced a campaign to honor educators across the country. More than 100 student-athletes featured in the “Big 12 Champions for Life” campaign have been given the opportunity to recognize a teacher (grades K-12) who made a lasting impact during their academic journey. Each nominated teacher will receive a $1,000 grant to be applied toward a classroom project and teaching supplies. Teacher announcements and more can be found on the Big 12 Champions for Life social platforms.
