TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Tuesday is National Teacher Appreciation Day, and Phil Tucker from Greater Lafayette Commerce’s education committee stopped by News 18 This Morning to tell viewers how they can nominate a teacher for a Golden Apple.
“What we’re hoping for is for parents and students to look at teachers that have made a difference in their child’s life or in their own life and nominate them for this award,” said Tucker.
Tucker said they’re looking for teachers that “inspire children to get excited about learning.”
Nominations can be made online or at any local school’s office in Tippecanoe County. The deadline is Thursday, May 12. For the 2017 Golden Apple Awards, teachers from grades K-6 will be honored.
