Beyond teaching in a Manhattan public school, nominees must teach grades K-12 and have at least five years of experience in the classroom. Teachers can be nominated by parents, students, principals, or colleagues. Approximately 25 candidates will be selected as semifinalists. The finalists and grand prize winner will be chosen based on the candidates' “dedication and focus on challenging and inspiring students of all abilities, and utilizing innovative teaching techniques and approaches to curricula and activities with a strong emphasis placed on the student experience and community.”
Five jurors will make the choices about which teachers will earn that $100,000. To nominate your child’s teacher or one you love in your community, visit the FLAG awards site before Jan. 13.
