Teacher Awards

Who makes school cool?

Ask those you know. We're looking for teachers who, through their enthusiasm and knowledge, inspire a passion for science and math in their students.

Now in its eighth year, the APEGGA Teacher Awards Program rewards elementary, junior high and senior high school teachers
"Who Makes School Cool" for students.

Through inspiration or perspiration, they work hard to encourage young minds to excel in difficult subjects. For their efforts these mentors are acknowledged by APEGGA at a public ceremony and receive
$500 each towards curriculum materials or field trips.

This year, the Association received more than 700 letters of support from students, parents, principals and school superintendents, as well as from other teachers. There were a total of 82 teachers nominated.
