    Teachers Making

            A Positive



    Recognize a teacher for teaching excellence

    Since 2003, KAKE has presented more than 500 Golden Apple awards honoring teachers in KAKEland who are making a positive difference in our schools. This program gives local teachers community-wide recognition for the creative ways they support, motivate and encourage a lifetime of learning, in and out of the classroom.

    Winners are featured every Monday night on KAKE News at 5 and receive the prestigious Golden Apple trophy from Davis-Moore, plus $1,000 worth of school supplies through Project Teacher! All the students in the classroom receive a snack from Lane Enterprises McDonald's

    Eligible nominees include Pre-K through 12th grade teachers in the KAKEland who inspire and motivate students to great heights in education. We’re looking for individuals who demonstrate creative teaching, develop programs for our youth and/or any other activities that add greater value to learning and/or have an exceptional attitude despite adversity.

    To nominate a teacher, use the online submission form or print a form to fill out.
