Dear Lincoln Families,

Is there a teacher at your school who deserves recognition for superior service to your 4th to 8th grade students, school, and its community? We invite you to please nominate them for a Golden Apple Award today!

Please also help us spread the word - by sharing our award information with staff and parents in your next school newsletter. It’s easy to nominate a deserving teacher - just submit a nomination online from now until the deadline of December 31, 2016.

To be eligible for the 2017 Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching, teachers must be actively teaching in a 4th-8th-grade class within Cook, Dupage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will counties. This year, 10 award recipients will each receive a $5,000 cash reward, experience a spring quarter sabbatical at Northwestern University, and become a lifetime Fellow of the Golden Apple Academy of Educators.

We greatly appreciate both your nominations and your help in spreading the message to your school community. Nominations are due by December 31, 2016.

If you have questions about this nomination process, criteria, or benefits, please feel free to reach out to our Awards team:
