Golden Apple Award

Food City and News 12 want to reward the teachers who are going above and beyond the standard teaching methods. An area teacher will be selected to receive the Golden Apple Award and profiled every Tuesday on News 12 at 6pm. These winners will be selected from your nominations by a panel of judges. At the end of the school year, a Teacher of the Year will be chosen from the year’s winners.

We are no longer accepting nominations for the 2017-18 Year.
