Oregon Schools Participating in
15th Annual Oregon Lottery® Scratch-itSM for Schools Events

April 01, 2011 - Salem, Ore. - Beginning Monday, April 4, 75 Oregon schools across the state will have an opportunity to win cash for their schools.

At each of the seven statewide events, two adults from each of the schools are partnered with two other adults from local TV and radio stations, as well as newspapers, to form a four-person team. All four team members will scratch as many Scratch-it tickets as they can, fast and furiously, while a countdown clock speeds away. At the end of the time, all cash prizes teams uncover are the school’s to keep.

“The Scratch-it for Schools events provides the participating schools with fun way to win extra dollars for their schools,” said Oregon Lottery Director Larry Niswender. “This event provides the Lottery with another opportunity to contribute to Oregon’s schools.”

Last year, the public schools from across the state taking part in the Oregon Lottery’s Scratch-it for Schools event won over $82,000. Since the Scratch-it for Schools program began in 1996, over $1 million has been awarded to the participating public schools.

Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $7 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit
