Proud Education Partner of the Chicago Blackhawks

Teaming up with the Hawks to support education

We are the proud educational partner of the Chicago Blackhawks—and this season, we’re teaming up with the Hawks to promote the importance of education. We’re inviting Chicagoland residents of all ages to participate in Education Night at the United Center and we’re donating Hawks tickets and classroom resources to outstanding educators. We are also offering scholarship opportunities to Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana residents.

Education night

Education Night was a huge success, with Blackhawks fans donating hundreds of school supplies for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. The first 10,000 fans through the gate at the United Center received a retro lunchbox, too.

This season, we plan to score big again. Please join us and help support education throughout our communities.

Do you know a teacher who is "top-shelf?"

We’ve partnered with the Hawks for Top-Shelf Teachers, a program that recognizes and rewards hardworking educators throughout the region.

Come back each season to nominate your favorite teacher. Qualified individuals will be entered in a drawing and randomly selected to receive:

  • A Blackhawks replica jersey
  • Six 300-level tickets to a regular-season home game
  • A $100 gift card from DonorsChoose.org to help support a class project

Blackhawks Breakaway Scholarship

Break away from the pack by completing your degree. In partnership with the Blackhawks, each season we offer three full-tuition University of Phoenix scholarships to Illinois, Wisconsin or Indiana residents.
