For the second straight year, Green Mountain Naturals is searching for America’s most inspirational teacher with its Apple for a Teacher contest. The winning teacher will receive a $10,000 grant to his or her school to continue the great work he or she does every day.
Last year’s Apple for a Teacher contest collected hundreds of nominations that resulted in one inspirational winner.
As voted upon by the Green Mountain Naturals Facebook community, Jennifer Kelsey of Camden Intermediate School in Camden, North Carolina, was named America’s Most Inspirational Teacher in 2011.
Kelsey was nominated by a colleague for her hard work and dedication to her students inside and outside of the classroom.
“Overall, my motto during this process has been and continues to be, ‘Thank you for believing in the power of education,’” says Kelsey.
Till October 19, 2012, fans are invited to nominate a teacher that has inspired them or their children at the contest tab on the Green Mountain Naturals Facebook page.
An expert panel, including Kristen Doyle of Dine & Dish, Dr. Joseph V. Erardi, Jr., Superintendent of Southington, CT Public Schools, and last year’s Most Inspirational Teacher, Jennifer Kelsey, will review entries and narrow it down to the top five finalists.
