Stocks in this article: ING

"ING U.S. is proud of the hard work and dedication of all of our nation's teachers," said Maliz Beams, CEO of ING U.S. Retirement. "It is a privilege to invest in the innovative ideas of educators across the U.S. who are preparing our children for the future. We hope the additional funds Harry Preston is awarded through ING Unsung Heroes will help sustain his 'FAST' program and continue to make an impact on the children in his community."

ING U.S. began the ING Unsung Heroes program in 1996 to demonstrate the company's commitment to the education community. Over the years, the program has awarded nearly $4 million to 1,700 educators in kindergarten through 12 th grade for their innovative teaching methods, creative educational projects and ability to positively influence the children they teach.

To learn more about this year's winning projects, as well as those from previous years, visit the ING Unsung Heroes website ( unsungheroes.com). More information about the program can also be found on the ING Unsung Heroes Facebook page ( facebook.com/unsungheroesgrant) where people can like and share the page to encourage more educators to apply. Applications for the 2013 ING Unsung Heroes awards are available on the website.
