ROCKFORD — You have until Thursday to nominate someone for the prestigious Golden Apple award for excellence in teaching.
Go HERE to nominate a sixth through 12th grade teacher in Boone or Winnebago counties. Teachers must also have five years experience, be in good standing with their district, and work full time in a public school or Illinois State Board of Education recognized non-public school to be nominated.
A selection committee will evaluate nominees’ portfolios and name 20 semifinalists by Dec. 16, and the five winners will be surprised in their classrooms on March 10.
Visit the Golden Apple Foundation website here to learn more about the award or submit a nomination.
