Award Information

The 2016 Apple for a Teacher Awards Ceremony will be April 21 at the Hub 801 Events Grand Ballroom.

Sponsored by the Standard-Examiner’s Newspapers in Education program, Apple for the Teacher gives students, administrators and parents the opportunity to nominate and recognize teachers that have made a difference in their lives.

Each year, the Standard-Examiner asks area students to nominate a teacher that has made a significant impact or contribution to students, schools, or the community. Thousands of nominations are submitted, and teachers are recognized at the Apple for the Teacher Awards Ceremony in April. All nominees will also be listed in Apple for the Teacher special section in April..The nominations are read and teachers and students share their experiences and life changing moments. Each child has a special story to share: They include touching, poignant, funny and endearing stories.

Over 300 area educators, families and students attend this annual event. Teachers receive a special gift and are recognized in an Apple for Teacher publication. Design-An-Ad and Arts & Humanities Contest Winners will also be recognized at the Apple for the Teacher Awards Ceremony.
