Teachers and counselors can be nominated through December 2.
Last year’s judging panel–made up of DOE officials and representatives from the United Federation of Teachers and Fund for Public Schools–selected 17 award recipients from a record 7,100 nominations. That’s triple the amount of nominations received in the awards’ first year. Award recipients will represent teachers citywide for the 2020-21 school year as Big Apple Fellows and members of the Chancellor’s Teacher Advisory Group while continuing their work in the classroom.

Big Apple Award winners are teachers from schools and neighborhoods across the city, who represent many different backgrounds and subject areas. To nominate your child’s outstanding teacher or counselor, or one you love in your community, head to the Big Apple Awards website.
