If you have a teacher in your life who you feel is worthy of more recognition, you can nominate them for the Super Teacher Awards. The program has honored 64 teachers and awarded more than $200,000 in prizes. This year, eight Virginia educators will be selected as the 2016 Super Teachers, winning $2,000 from the Virginia Lottery and $2,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.
Anyone 18 or older can nominate a Virginia pre-K-12 public school teacher. Nominations must be received by Feb. 15. Winners will be announced online in the spring and through a surprise presentation in each winning teacher’s hometown.
