EMPORIA (AP) -- Three Emporia State University students are launching a national campaign to honor teachers and help the university's National Teachers Hall of Fame.

The university said in a news release Tuesday that the students are trying to raise $1 million in one semester by encouraging people across the country to honor a teacher.

The students are Beka Enoch of Manhattan, Holli Schletzbaum of Wichita and Kelsey Cowan of Olathe. They are asking people to record comments about a favorite teacher on the Hall of Fame's website or at the hall of fame's museum. The comments should be accompanied by a minimum $1 donation.

The money will be used to fund activities at the Teachers Hall of Fame, which was founded in 1989 on Emporia State campus.
