Support TIC: Purchase Sweepstakes Tickets Today!

Oct 26, 2017

Each year PATU supports the Trout In the Classroom with an Existing Program Grant. This competitive grant helps offset the costs of the release day field trip that is both fun and educational- a day full of hands-on learning activities for the students who have helped raise and care for their trout. With the number of classrooms participating in TIC growing every year, so too does the number of applications submitted for this grant. This year, PATU was only able to fulfill about 50% of requested funds.

By entering this TIC Sweepstakes fundraising effort, you will be supporting the hundreds of teachers and thousands of students who participate in the program.

Each year, PATU program staff receives letters of thanks from the teachers we support through this grant. Many are accompanied by student letters and drawings which convey their excitement and appreciation for the TIC program and the opportunity to participate. There is no question that TIC is meeting the goal of connecting students to the coldwater resources in their communities and instilling a conservation ethic that will last a lifetime. Help support this critical educational program by participating in this year’s sweepstakes.
