Stars of the Classroom

Since 2011, the Royals have joined Missouri Lottery to honor outstanding educators through the Missouri Lottery Stars of the Classroom recognition program. Prior to six Royals games throughout the summer, Missouri Lottery and the Royals celebrate the achievements of top teachers from six school districts in the metro area.

The Missouri Lottery has contributed more than $4 billion to the state of Missouri and its public education programs and generates more than $250 million for vital education programs each year.

The Royals work in partnership with local school districts to honor an outstanding educator with the Stars of the Classroom award. Each teacher receives four (4) tickets to the game, a parking pass will be featured during a special presentation prior to the game.

The Stars of the Classroom program is now closed. Dates for the 2016 season will be announced next spring.
