Denver Public Schools students and Noble Energy have been proud to support the Denver Broncos this season as we send the AFC Champions off to the Super Bowl this weekend. Noble Energy and the DPS Foundation have teamed up with the Denver Broncos to give back to students in Denver Public Schools. Thanks to the generosity of Noble Energy, the DPS Foundation was able to recognize and reward outstanding students who excel in math and science by sending them to a home Broncos game this season.
Noble Energy’s community service program asked DPS educators to nominate high-achieving DPS students to attend each home game. Four students were invited to cheer on the Broncos at each home game along with the accompaniment of a parent. The students are given the opportunity of a life time, where they get to stand on the field before the game and get recognized for their achievements in math and science on the stadium’s big screen TV.
Another way Noble Energy is supporting Denver Public Schools Foundation this year, is by committing to their “Red Zone” program again for the season’s home games. The “Red Zone” is a way for Noble Energy to support DPS in a fun way that helps enhance education through financial means. The company committed to giving $1,000 to Denver Public Schools Foundation each time Peyton Manning’s offense gets within 20 yards of their opponent’s end zone. Last year the Red Zone program raised $40,000 for the DPS Foundation! Stay tuned for updates on this year’s total Red Zone donation.
