Love Your Child’s Teacher?

Then nominate him or her for a Big Apple Award!

The awards, administered by the NYC Department of Education, recognize teachers who “inspire students, model great teaching, and enrich their school communities.” Nominees must be current, full-time teachers, and anyone – students, parents, teachers, administrators, or community members – may submit a nomination.

Following the nomination process, 1,000 nominees will be invited to submit an application. These will be narrowed down to up to 250 applicants, who will be invited to participate in an interview and who will receive a classroom visit. Finally, a Board of Judges will recommend up to 15 final recipients to be approved by the Chancellor. Recipients will receive classroom grants, will be recognized at the Big Apple Awards ceremony in June 2016, and will serve on the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Group.

Nominations are due on January 18, 2016 and may be submitted here. And here is a look at last year’s award recipients.
