The Virginia Lottery needs your help to honor an outstanding public school teacher!
You can nominate a teacher for the 10th annual Super Teacher Awards now through Feb. 13.
Since 2008, the Super Teacher program has honored 72 teachers and awarded more than $288,000 in prizes.
From this year’s nominees, eight Virginia educators will be selected as the 2017 Super Teachers, winning $2,000 from the Virginia Lottery and $2,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.
The 2017 Super Teachers will be selected by a panel of distinguished educators and community leaders, including:
- Dr. Jo Lynne DeMary, former State Superintendent for Public Instruction
- The Honorable James W. Dyke, former Virginia Secretary of Education
- Dr. Martha Ross, professor emerita, James Madison University
- Jane Broe, president of the Virginia Parent Teacher Association
- Jason Long, Super Teacher 2016, Lucy Addition M.S. (Roanoke)
Anyone 18 or older can nominate a Virginia pre-K-12 public school teacher. Learn more here.
Winners will be announced online in spring, and through a surprise presentation in each winning teacher’s hometown.
