Participating students should submit a video nomination to highlight teachers that are going above and beyond by implementing creative virtual instruction and engaging students in innovative ways. Parents and other adults may help students.

All K-12 southern Arizona teachers are eligible to be nominated. Five teachers will be selected for the award and will receive $250 cash, a $100 gift card to Office Depot/OfficeMax, a plaque, and flowers.

To submit a nomination, students will need to:
