The mayor of Boston this week honored a Dorchester third grade teacher who won a $150,000 online contest and donated the money to her school.

26-year-old Nikki Bollerman entered an online contest called the #WishForOthers campaign.

She said she wished for her “vivacious, loving third-grade scholars” to all get new books for the holiday this year.

Contest sponsor Capitol One funded three books per student, and then went further, awarding Bollerman one of the contest’s grand prizes of $150,000, reports WBUR.

Nikki then promptly donated the prize to her school.
