Scratch for Schools

Jim Bruce Scratch for Schools is a fundraising event that is fun and could reap big benefits for your school! The Jim Bruce Scratch for Schools event is a chance to raise additional funds for your school’s needs – books, desks, audio/video equipment, playground materials and field trips. This is a great and easy opportunity to win money for your school.

Since Scratch for Schools began in 2001, Idaho Lottery has given $1,131,923 additional dollars to Idaho Public Schools and the Permanent Building Fund.

How to get started
  1. Bookmark THIS WEBPAGE and add the date(s) and venue(s) to your calendar.
  2. Round up the three luckiest, most coordinated, most dexterous teachers, administrators, school faculty or parents at your school. Team members must be at least 18 years or older. Students may not participate.

    During the event, each team is given 300 lottery Scratch tickets. On “Scratch!” each team scratches as many tickets as they can in five minutes. Prize amounts uncovered by each team are donated to their school. Teams that scratch the most tickets receive more tickets to scratch. Everyone walks away a winner!
