The Golden Apple Award honors those who believe in the true spirit of teaching by making classrooms a fun and safe place of learning.

KNOE 8 and Hixson Auto are recognizing outstanding teachers — the everyday heroes who make the crucial difference in our children's lives.

Help us acknowledge those who are rarely recognized. If you know an outstanding teacher who deserves recognition for their efforts in the classroom, we want to know.

You may be contacted by KNOE 8 if your nomination is selected.

Please nominate a person once. We save all nomination forms for one calendar year.
