  • Have your students collect pennies October - December 16th.
  • Pennies will be picked up from your school the week of December 19th to be counted.
  • Pennies will be tabulated by grade level at each school.
  • The grade level that collects the most pennies will receive a Cardinals Event in February (there will be only 1 winner in the state) that includes Hickman's Family Farms, the Arizona Cardinals, Ag in the Classroom and more. 
  • Pennies will be donated to your local food bank once all pennies have been collected and tabulated.
